MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) — The manager of two central Indiana convenience stores where authorities say synthetic drugs known commonly as bath salts were sold has pleaded guilty to criminal charges.
Twenty-seven-year-old Harpreet Singh made the guilty plea to a felony charge of corrupt business influence during a Delaware County court hearing Monday. He was among eight people arrested in June 2012 after police raids of six convenience stores in Muncie and Yorktown.
The Star Press reports deputy prosecutor Eric Hoffman described Singh's role in the scheme as the most significant. Singh acknowledged during Monday's hearing that he was involved in "all aspects" of operations at two stores, including the sale of bath salts.
Singh's plea agreement calls for a maximum four-year prison term. Sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 2.
