Greenbrier residents hope arrest is not a sign of more trouble

A central Arkansas business owner is out on bond after being arrested for selling dangerous drugs from his gas stations.




The arrest stems from a joint investigation between three different law enforcement agencies; the Faulkner County sheriff's department, Damascus police and Greenbrier police.

The owner, 26-year-old Amarjit Singh, was arrested and faces charges for selling K-2 or synthetic marijuana along with bath salts and more than a hundred other various pills.

"We really don't have this kind of thing happening in Greenbrier," said Gracie Lasley, "I've lived here all my life."

Lasley said it makes her worry about the town she considers small and safe.

"Everybody knows everybody," she said.

Now she's worried it's headed in the wrong direction.

Just up highway 65 in Damascus the Main Street Mercantile, also owned by Singh, was also found to be selling the illegal substances.

Damascus police aided the Faulkner County sheriff's in a search of the store where they said Singh was committing these crimes right under their noses.

"They really are dangerous and I think all of them should get caught," she said.

Gracie said the dangerous bath salts, which are similar to Amphetamine and Cocaine, have no place in her small community.
