A Wausau business owner is striking a plea deal in a case involving the sale of synthetic marijuana.
Online court records say 48 year old John Rundell pleaded guilty to possession of non-narcotics with intent to deliver.
Two other charges were dismissed and Rundell got a deferred judgment.
He has to get treatment and counseling and must not break the law for two years. After that point, a judge will review the case.
In October 2011 police raided Rundell's business, Blazin' Gifts in Wausau. Officers confiscated 138 packages of synthetic marijuana, commonly called K-2.
Synthetic pot became illegal in the city a few months before.
29 year old Justin Beese and 30 year old Dale Schroeder face similar charges after a raid at the Lil Devil Glass Shop in Wausau at about the same time.
Police say they found 277 packages of K-2 there.
Online court records say Beese and Schroeder are due in court Monday.The records indicate they have struck a deal as well.
Both businesses remain open.
