State excise police raided Nirvana in the FairOaks Mall on Monday, taking fruit gum candies and other products made with a marijuana-derived oil.
Listed as a women’s clothing store in its online website, authorities said they also found a small amount of marijuana in the store’s tobacco shop.
Excise police cited the store on preliminary charges of being a public nuisance, possession of marijuana and possession of counterfeit controlled substance.
Investigators also used a search warrant at the home of Nivana’s owner, Tulsidas G. Narsinghani, finding several cannabidiol oil products “including liquid, capsules, gummy bears, paper documents, drug paraphernalia, a small amount of suspected marijuana, and over $20,000 U.S. currency,” said a news release from Cpl. Heather L. Lynch, an Indiana State Excise Police public information officer.
