Corinth police have made two arrests linked to their recent drug-laced candy confiscation, officials said in a news release.

Marisol Noriega, a 20-year-old from Frisco, was arrested and charged Tuesday with manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana more than four ounces and less than five pounds.

Lt. Jimmie Gregg, spokesman for Corinth Police Department, said Noriega was found with confiscated items that appeared to be large gummy bears, candy bars, hard candies and even soda pop that all contained tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC, which is the main active chemical compound found in marijuana.

She also possessed half a pound of marijuana, police said in the release.

After an ongoing investigation, a 23-year-old Denton resident, David Ramos, was arrested and charged with manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance Wednesday.

Noriega has since posted bail, but Ramos currently sits in the Denton County Jail on a $10,000 bond, jail records show.

Corinth police are urging parents of small children and teenagers to be aware of the possible new trend in illegal drug sales.

This is still an ongoing investigation into the incident, law enforcement officials said. 

Anyone who has questions about the drug-laced items may contact the police at 940-498-2017.
