Fourth person arrested in illegal THC vaping business
KENOSHA, Wis. — Authorities have made a fourth arrest in connection with a black market THC vape manufacturing business in Wisconsin.
A 20-year-old woman is being held in the Kenosha County Jail on possible charges of manufacturing of delivering marijuana. But, officials haven’t said yet what role the woman may have had in the business.
Forty-three-year-old Courtney Huffhines, her sons, 23-year-old Jacob Huffhines and 20-year-old Tyler Huffhines, are accused of operating a large scale THC vaping business in southeast Wisconsin.
Courtney Huffhines’ attorney Robert Keller says she will plead not guilty to the six felony charges against her, including manufacturing or delivering THC. She was released on $100,000 bond after appearing in court Tuesday.
Hundreds of illnesses nationwide have been linked to vaping, but authorities haven’t singled out a product as the culprit.
