DOTHAN, AL (WSFA) -

Two men have been taken into custody and over 2000 grams of spice were recovered in a drug bust Wednesday in Dothan.

According to the Houston Co. Sheriff's office, 2240 grams of synthetic marijuana was recovered during a search warrant at 1103 Seminole drive in Dothan.

The warrant was part of a four month long drug investigation and it's estimated that the recovered spice was street valued at $6500.

Tramaine Bradley of Headland, 27, and Ernest Whitehurst of Dothan, 24, were arrested and charged with trafficking. Bradley was also charged with resisting arrest. His mug shot shows two black eyes.

Both are being held at the Houston County Jail, Bradley with a $1.5 million bond each. Bradley received an additional $300 bond.  

Authorities say they also retrieved materials to manufacture, produce and distribute synthetic marijuana during the bust.

Some of our viewers expressed outrage after seeing the mugshot photo of Brantley. They think authorities used excessive force. Others showed support for law enforcement. 

"The bible tells you to pretty much acknowledge the law I would way comply but complying and being a target is too different things," said Amanda Casey. 

Houston County Sheriff Donald Valenza declined to comment any further. The investigation is ongoing and more details are expected in a preliminary hearing.
