Salem Police Break Up Group Allegedly Selling Synthetic Drugs

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

Three people arrested on synthetic cannabis related charges have been released from the Marion County Jail pending a report from the State Crime Lab on what the large number of packages labeled as 'Darkness' contain.  

State's Attorney Matt Wilzbach says the controlled substance law requires him to identify the compound involved.  He reports synthetic drugs vary in their make-up, requiring the lab work.  

20-year-old Dillon Pryor of Bluford and 19-year-old Josie Mann of North Walnut in Richview were arrested after a search warrant was executed on their room at the Comfort Inn where Salem Police believe the two were selling the drugs.  18-year-old Dylan Justin of West Indiana in Sandoval was arrested after 31 packages of Darkness were found under the passenger seat where he was seated. Salem Police requested Sandoval Police stop the vehicle after it was seen leaving the motel room.  

Salem Police Chief Ron Campo reports a large number of Darkness packages were recovered along with $6,000 in cash when the search warrant was executed.  He reports a large amount of drug trade had occurred during the past week from the room attracting the attention of police.   Both Pryor and Mann were in the room when police conducted the raid.   Campo says they will also seek to seize the pickup truck the two were allegedly using in the drug trafficking.
