Complaints from citizens led to the discovery of THC products


ST. CLAIR COUNTY — The St. Clair County Drug Task Force recently completed an investigation into a Port Huron business allegedly selling marijuana and THC products to minors.

In late December, the Drug Task Force executed search warrants at 1526 10th Street and 1626 Carleton Street in Port Huron.

The investigation was initiated after numerous citizen’s complaints about suspected illegal activity at TOP Shelf Hookah and the home of 35-year-old business owner, Mohammed Asan.

According to information provided by the SCC Drug Task Force, investigators found an extensive amount of marijuana and THC products with a street value of about $337,000.

They also found and seized more than $42,000 in cash and a 9-mm handgun at Asan’s home.

Charges pending against Asan include possession with intent to distribute; maintaining a drug business; maintaining a drug house; and felony firearm possession.

Also listed among the seized items were THC gummies and hard candies, vape cartridges, THC oil, pills, and an unknown liquid substance believed to be a methamphetamine/fentanyl compound.
