More than 90 pounds of synthetic marijuana and $232,000 in cash were seized during a raid of a south Minneapolis tobacco shop and a clerk's home, according to the Star Tribune.

Mokrane Rahim, 30, of New Brighton, was charged with fourth-degree sale of a controlled substance to a police officer on Monday and could face additional charges.

Minneapolis police had been conducting an undercover narcotics investigation into the store, located near the intersection of 46th and Nicollet Avenue South in relation to marijuana sales, KMSP Fox reported.

Authorities raided the shop and Rahim's home while Rahim was working.

Rahim was released Tuesday after posting $5,000 bail.

As of Wednesday, the shop at 4612 Nicollet Av. S. was still open for business.
