The Seneca City Council voted 7-1 Tuesday to strip the business license from a shop suspected of selling illegal synthetic drugs earlier this month.

The Anderson Independent Mail reports the attorney for "Purple Haze" argued the action was "premature at best, wrong at worst" because criminal charges stemmed from a case in Easley and there were no outstanding charges in Seneca.

The Independent Mail reports Seneca Police Chief John Covington requested the shop on West North 1st Street be stripped of its license and says the investigation is ongoing and other charges are possible.

Seneca officials tell the Independent Mail now an action to revoke the business license will be filed with the court for a judge's ruling to formally revoke the license.

Sabrina Jenkins, owner of "Purple Haze", was one of seven people arrested on May 1st in a roundup that followed nearly a year of investigation.

Five stores were raided, including "Purple Haze", along with stores in Easley, Clemson and Anderson.
