The charge states that between April 8, 2016, to Oct. 3, 2016, Carrico allowed trafficking of synthetic drugs out of his business, Waking Dreams, located at 37 Public Square, Mount Vernon.

Carrico pleaded to the charge in a bill of information. By pleading to the bill, possible, additional charges will not be brought before the grand jury.
