Drug charges added against Ohio man in fatal fire

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio man charged with setting a fire that killed two Toledo firefighters has been indicted on unrelated charges of selling synthetic drugs.

The Lucas County Prosecutor’s Office said 61-year-old Ray Abou-Arab was indicted Thursday on two counts of trafficking in a controlled substance. His son, 34-year-old Omar Abou-Arab, was indicted on two counts of complicity in the commission of trafficking in a controlled substance.

The Blade newspaper of Toledo reports that they are accused of selling an illegal synthetic marijuana product at a store they operated.

Ray Abou-Arab has pleaded not guilty to charges that he set the fire in late January that killed a veteran firefighter and a rookie. He’s in jail on a nearly $6 million bond.

A judge issued a gag order for attorneys in the case.
