Arraignments For Pair In Pot Vendor Party

Two people are set to be arraigned in court on Tuesday after police seized 200 pounds of marijuana in a building in Springfield.   

Police said an illegal underground "vendor party" drew in 150 customers  and dozens of sellers at the Mardi Gras strip club building on Dwight  Street on Friday night.  

Alissa Nowak of Bellingham and Hemant Shani of Springfield were arrested and face drug distribution charges.

The Springfield Mayor says that he will meet with the District Attorney and the Attorney General to determine what sanctions need to be administered against the owners.

Meantime, officials say that they will schedule a License Commission Hearing but have not released that date yet.
