Jefferson County man indicted for possessing lego-shaped blocks of synthetic marijuana

Press release from U.S. Attorney's Office:

Jefferson County Man Arrested, Charged for Synthetic Marijuana
BEAUMONT, Texas - A 32-year-old Beaumont, Texas man has been arrested for possessing Lego-shaped blocks of synthetic marijuana in the Eastern District of Texas, announced U.S. Attorney John M. Bales today.  
Conrad Stanley Hammon was indicted by a federal grand jury on Aug. 6, 2014 and charged with possession with intent to distribute Dimethyltrypamine (DMT), or synthetic marijuana.
According to information presented in court, a state-issued search warrant was executed on June 13, 2014 at a residence in the 3900 block of Sunbury Drive in Beaumont.  Approximately 85 kilograms of DMT was discovered during the search.  Synthetic marijuana is often targeted for sale to minors or younger adults.  This particular seizure included liquid DMT injected into Lego-shaped blocks.  Hammon was arrested at his residence on the morning of Aug. 8, 2014 and brought before U.S. Magistrate Judge Keith F. Giblin for an Initial Appearance.  Hammon was released pending trial.
If convicted, Hammon faces up to 20 years in federal prison.
This case is being investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Jefferson County Narcotics Task Force and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert L. Rawls.
A grand jury indictment is not evidence of guilt and all defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
