It is unclear how many bars were sold and to who. There was no word on if there were any injuries for people who ate the allegedly laced candy.

Both Ajomai and Ahmed pleaded not guilty to criminal possession of a controlled substance. Ajomai, the owner, also pleaded not guilty to criminal sale of a controlled substance.

“If they were selling illegal stuff, they not supposed to sell illegal stuff,” Umer Farooq of East Meadow told News 12 Long Island reported.. “If the town has a legal authority to do that, they exercised their authority to do it.”
