NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Metro police padlocked two Nashville businesses owned by the same man on Monday afternoon for selling synthetic marijuana.

Authorities said Osama Hezkyal, the owner of Kwik Stop Super Mercado on Smith Springs Road, allegedly sold 20 packages of synthetic marijuana to a police operative on November 21.

Thirty-six-year-old Hezkyal is also the owner of the Nashville Discount Tobacco and Beer on Dickerson Pike that was also declared a public nuisance and shut down Monday.

Police said on November 18, an operative purchased more than a dozen packages of synthetic marijuana from the north Nashville store.

Earlier this month, on December 3, detectives stopped a person outside the Nashville Discount Tobacco and Beer in possession of 21 packages of synthetic marijuana.

The individual reported to police he had purchased the substance from Hezkyal who told him to sell 20 packages for $600 and keep one package for himself.

Hezkyal was arrested in April for selling two packages of the synthetic drug to a police operative.

Both stores remain closed indefinitely. Signs were placed on the businesses' doors alerting them of the unexpected closure.

Earlier in the day, police padlocked a west Nashville convenience store after undercover underage decoys were able to purchase beer.
