A woman suspected to be on a synthetic drug called spice, walked into an East Anchorage, Alaska Subway sandwich shop Tuesday night, removed her clothes and trashed the restaurant.
The woman, later identified as Nikki Abrell, 35, has been charged with third-degree criminal mischief, harassment and resisting arrest by the Anchorage Police Department, according to local CBS affiliate KTVA Channel 11 News.
The complaint against Abrell indicated that she “could not hold a conversation only murmured her statements,” and she therefore “appeared to [be] under the influence of drugs.”
KTVA CBS 11 reported:
When asked why police believe she was under the influence of spice, Shell said, “I think it was the behavior more than anything.”
While authorities don’t know for sure what was behind Abrell’s erratic behavior, the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services has been studying the uptick in paramedic calls to see if the drug spice is truly the culprit.
Dr. Michael Cooper said, so far, it seems to be.
“There’s a good proportion of the ones that we’ve reviewed so far that are, in fact, likely or highly likely related to spice,” Cooper told the station.
Coming from drug labs in California, spice is a combination of cocaine, methamphetamine and ecstasy, as well as other chemicals, producing effects 30 to 50 times more powerful than marijuana.
“They can give you symptoms like acute psychosis, hallucinations, delusions, true psychotic features,” Cooper said. “It’s a deadly game.”
The court set Abrell’s bail at $10,000 at her arraignment Wednesday. The restaurant’s building maintenance supervisor estimated damages at $20,000.
