Smoke shop owner indicted

Posted by wlpo on September 25, 2013

          It’s hard to ignore the words “hooka” and “rolling papers” when they are plastered across a storefront.  That store is the Peru Smoke Shop on Fourth Street in Peru.  The owner remains in jail after being indicted for a felony drug charge Tuesday.

Abdel Rahman of Tinley Park was arrested September 10 as police officers raided the smoke shop in Peru and another in Spring Valley.  He’s accused of selling synthetic marijuana, a drug that’s sometimes legal.  Peru Police Chief Doug Bernabei calls it just as dangerous as heroin.

          Rahman’s bond was set at $1 million.
