MIDVALE — Criminal charges have been filed against nine people in connection with an alleged Spice operation.

The Utah Attorney General's Office filed nine counts of drug distribution, a third-degree felony, in 3rd District Court Tuesday, one for each co-defendant.

Court records indicate that on Feb. 7, search warrants were served at two locations: 7127 S. 400 West and 189 E. Fort Union Blvd. Both properties are associated with TJW Corp., owned and operated by Timothy Woodward, 33, and Jason Payne, 34, the charges state.

At the 400 West location, officers "seized 311 vials of what appeared to be Spice, synthetic marijuana," according to the charges. At the other address, "business records were located indicating the sale or potential sale of Spice."

The charges were filed against Woodward, Payne and other members of the company: Joshua Clayton, 33, William Voorhees, 34, Christopher Woodwoord, 34, Steven Morrison, 26, Jamie Spackman, 36, Kaylin Callahan, 24, and Jill Garcia, 25.

"Business records indicate that they were all actively selling Spice around the country, mostly to smoke shops," charging documents state.
