Kenner business owner arrested for distributing synthetic marijuana

Updated:

Kenner, La. - A Kenner business owner is behind bars for selling synthetic marijuana, according to a spokesman with the Kenner Police Department.

Authorities arrested 40 year-old Chang Zhu for distributing synthetic marijuana at the Baby Boy Food Mart on Airline Drive.

Police say the investigation began when a Crimestoppers tip came in from a mother reporting that her daughter had overdosed and was hospitalized after using synthetic marijuana purchased from the business.

During an undercover investigation, it was determined the Zhu was distributing synthetic marijuana and that he kept the product behind the counter out of view and would only sell it to people he became familiar with. 

Zhu was charged concerning three undercover purchases that were made by detectives at the business.  Synthetic products were recovered during the search of the business.
