PHOENIX (AP) - An Arizona grand jury has indicted two brothers on 13 felony charges for allegedly selling a form of synthetic marijuana laced with the chemical Fentanyl at a Tempe smoke shop.

The state Attorney General’s Office announced Tuesday that Iskandar Hallak and Saif Hallak each were indicted on various charges including the sale or transfer of a narcotic drug, manufacture of a dangerous drug and illegally conducting an enterprise.

The men were arrested in June after Maricopa County investigators served a search warrant at a home and found 50 pounds of the drug called spice.

Authorities say some of the spice tested positive for Fentanyl.

Law enforcement officers had been investigating the shop since April for allegedly selling spice.

It was unclear Tuesday if either of the Hallaks has an attorney.
