WARSAW, Ind. (WANE)  An investigation that lasted several months has led to the arrest of three men who allegedly were selling look-alike drugs from a Kosciusko County convenience store.

According to a news release issued by the Warsaw Police Department, police and the Kosciusko County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office received complaints of the merchandise being sold at Katie’s Kwik Mart located at 101 S. Main Street in Leesburg.

Police got a search warrant and recovered 278 packets of the merchandise.  They also confiscated the store’s surveillance equipment for examination.

On Thursday, February 13, Warsaw police arrested Baljinder Singh, 23, and Pinka Singh, 29, both of 205 W.
