Two Accused Of Selling Tainted Candies At The Great Frederick Fair

They’re charged with drug offenses.

Frederick, Md. (KM) The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office says it’s applying for  charges against a vendor at the Great Frederick Fair for selling candies laced with THC, the main ingredient in marijuana. Robert Andrew Cody Mc-Gee of Virginia Beach, Va., is expected to be charged  with distribution of a cannbidoil, a Schedule One Narcotic; possession with intent to distribute cannabidoil and possession of Cannabidiol. Robert Brandon Spiva of Blairsville, Ga., is expected to be charged  possession with intent to distribute Cannabidiol; possession of cannabidoil; possession with intent to distribute THC; and possession of THC..

Authorities say an undercover deputy on Monday purchased some gummies and wax from the vendor. The deputy detected the odor of pot inside the vendor area. The undercover cop says McGee said the product contained 4% THC.

The next day, the Sheriff’s Office conducted a search and seizure operation on the vendor, confiscating candies, oils, syrup and a white crystalline substance. Authorities say the oil and the “wax” also known as marijuana wax contained THC, which is also a Schedule One narcotic. The white crystalline substance tested positive for cannabidoil.

The owner of the vending stand was Spiva.

The Fair Board on Wednesday ordered that the vendor be removed from the Fairgrounds.

The Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Investigation Section says it took quick action following a complaint in the interest of public safety and those who are visiting the Great Frederick Fair.
