The Oak Grove Police Department made a synthetic drug bust on Thanksgiving Day with the help of an anonymous caller.

According to the arrest report, police were called to the area of the Gate 6 BP station on Fort Campbell Boulevard about 9:45 a.m. Police saw a suspicious vehicle attempting to leave the parking lot and stopped it.

The driver, Ayman S. Abu Taleb, 50, and his passenger, Gamal S. Ebid, 33, both of Antioch, Tenn., were told why they were stopped. When the officer asked for permission to search the vehicle, Abu Taleb said that the vehicle belonged to Ebid, who gave permission.

Police found 81 packages of Bomb Marley, a form of synthetic marijuana with a total street value of $1,600, a 9mm handgun and about $995 in cash. The car was also seized.

Each of the two men said that the drugs belonged to the other person.

The two men were each charged with trafficking in a synthetic cannibinoid agonists or piperazines and carrying a concealed deadly weapon. They were brought to the Christian County Jail.

OGPD Det. Ben Walden said that although the anonymous caller did not use the Crimestoppers phone line, he may still be eligible for a cash reward for letting the police know about the crime.
