Two arrested on charges of selling synthetic drugs

Posted:

Two people were arrested on charges of narcotic sales Tuesday. Police say suspicion was raised by several people arriving and leaving a residence in a short amount of time. 

A warrant was obtained by the Criminal Interdiction Unit and was served around 8:30 in the morning at 915 4th Street Southeast in Rochester. 

Their search turned up about two ounces of K2, a synthetic drug with effects similar to marijuana. 

Police say evidence of distribution includes several empty baggies and ledgers to keep track of sales.

A nine-month old boy also lives at the location, but police say the child was not at home during the raid. 

The two people arrested are 24-year-old Katlyn Murphy-Tasler and 25-year-old Casio Gilliam, both from Rochester. 

They are looking at charges of 4th degree sales of narcotics, 5th degree possession of narcotics, and child endangerment.
