MADISON, IN (WAVE) – Warrants have been issued for the owner and associates of a chain of smoke shops in southern Indiana.

Tuesday, Indiana State Police issued warrants for Julie Marshall, Steven Warren and Rita Smith.

Marshall is the owner of Needful Things, a novelty stores that specialize in smoking accessories.

After an investigation conducted by police, they uncovered numerous alleged financial and business crimes, as well as numerous drug related charges.

All three are charged with dealing synthetic drugs. State police said Marshall also faces racketeering charges.

WAVE 3 was at the novelty shop that specializes in smoking accessories back in July shortly after the Indiana State Police Organized Crime and Corruption Unit swooped in.

Marshall's Clarksville store was busted a little more than a year ago.

State Police said their investigation started last October.
