JACKSONVILLE -

Police arrested a 21-year-old Jacksonville man for allegedly dealing the drug "Spice."

Basim Abdulwahab was charged with 5 counts of trafficking synthetic cannabinoids among other charges.

"Spice" is a synthetic drug created to mimic the effects of marijuana.

"This is a prime example of the working relationship we have with NCIS and other law enforcement agencies in North Carolina," Director of Public Safety, Michael Yaniero said. "Illegal narcotics have no jurisdictional boundaries and will not be tolerated in our communities."

Abdulwahab is being held under a $54,000 bond.
