The Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission revoked a Fort Wayne gas station's alcohol permit yesterday after an excise police investigation discovered the sale of synthetic marijuana. 

Excise officers began the investigation after receiving a tip that the Coliseum Petroleum gas station at 909 E. Coliseum Blvd. was selling spice to customers. 

The store was cited on May 24th for two violations of the Alcoholic Beverage Code: public nuisance and failure to maintain a high and fine reputation. 

The store manager, Aman Dasson, 28 of Fort Wayne was also cited for dealing the lookalike drug. 

Excise officers conducted a search of the gas station and found the synthetic drugs inside plastic eggs labeled as Rotten Egg Car Freshener.

A store clerk told officers she sold 25 eggs that day for $5.00 each. 

Governor Mike Pence and Indiana Senator Jim Merritt signed legislation on May 7th, 2013 making the sale of synthetic lookalike drugs illegal. 

Excise police urge the public to come forward with any information about the sale of spice in the community.
