Man Accused of Dealing K2

One day after Evansville Police say several people were hospitalized for overdosing on synthetic marijuana, an Evansville man has been arrested for allegedly dealing the drug.

Tarone Johnson, 36, was arrested on Evansville's north side following a surveillance operation.

During that operation, police say they saw Johnson do hand-to-hand drug transactions outside of his house and at a nearby business.

Police say they arrested him on an active warrant. They also say they recovered 110 grams of synthetic marijuana during a search following this arrest.

Synthetic cannabis is sometimes called K2 or Spice.

Police believe as many as 15-20 overdoses in Evansville were related to the drug in recent weeks.
