Mohamed Moflahi, charged with trafficking analogs

MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) – More than seven pounds of analogs, the drugs commonly known as ‘spice’, are now off the streets of Madison.

Saturday, Feb. 15, Madison Police stopped a car driven by Mohamed Moflahi for a traffic violation. During the interaction it was discovered that Moflahi was trafficking a synthetic cannabinoid known as spice.

Moflahi, 22, was arrested and taken to the Madison County Jail on charges of trafficking in analogs and possession of drug paraphernalia.

“This stuff is not safe,” says Madison Police Captain John Stringer. “Everybody thought this was a safe, legal alternative to marijuana – it’s not. The chemical compounds that it’s laced with, the effects are more akin to ingesting PCP or LSD.”

Police say Moflahi was in possession of over 1,900 individual packets weighing in excess of seven pounds. That amount has an estimated street value of about $17,000.
