The Tremonton police department and Box Elder County Narcotic Strike Force joined together to make two arrests on Thursday morning, April 3, at the Blue Sphynx, a smoke shop on Tremont Street.
The departments obtained arrest warrants for the owner and operator of the Blue Sphynx, John Nathan Abel of Garland, and one of his employees, Rawlinn Kay Hodges of Tremonton. They were booked into the Box Elder County Jail for selling illegal drugs over an extended course of time.
Charges against Abel include three counts of Distribution of a Controlled Substance, second degree felonies. Hodges faces one count.
Detective Andy Marchant said, “The intent of the city is to revoke their business license based on their criminal actions.”
