SANTA FE (KRQE) - A Santa Fe boutique owner was one of seven people arrested for allegedly dealing drugs Thursday.
The feds say Ashraf Nassar, owner of Heavenly Boutique near the plaza was selling oxycodone and marijuana to people around the city.
They say Nassar and his co-conspirators had a pretty sophisticated pot operation going.
“It was an indoor grow with an irrigation system, a lighting system, getting the humidity to the perfect temperature and moisture,” said Eduardo Chavez of the Drug Enforcement Agency. “What it does is increase the THC levels, which allows them to then sell it for a more expensive price.”
The DEA has been tracking the operation for a year.
They're still looking for other suspects.
