They appeared in court Monday on charges of intent to distribute marijuana and THC-based products after an investigation allegedly revealed high school-aged teenagers coming and going from the store, police said. The teens were allegedly taken to the side door of the business, instead of the cash register, and were then seen leaving with marijuana, police said.
Evidence seized by police included about 12 ounces of marijuana edibles and cartridges of vape liquid containing THC and about $5,000 in cash, authorities said.
The store's owner, Jason Correia, 25, was not at the store when police raided it, but he is also facing charges. The store had only been open for about a year, but the license to sell tobacco had expired, according to police.
