Authorities in Gillette say a large amount
of what appears to be synthetic marijuana has been seized from
inmates who were fighting at the Volunteers of America correctional facility, a halfway house for low-risk inmates.
Jail guards say they found 16 Ziploc bags of Spice while booking the five inmates into jail.
Spice is a legal herb sold in smoke shops and convenience stores, but investigators believe the confiscated Spice was spiked with THC, a chemical found in marijuana.
Campbell County Undersheriff Scott Matheny says the seized herbs are being sent to the state crime lab for analysis.
Investigators say the five men were fighting over the synthetic marijuana.
