ABILENE, Texas -

A father and son were indicted Thursday for allegedly selling a controlled substance to an undercover police officer.

Charles B. Ridenour, 44, and Charles C. Ridenour, 19, allegedly sold pentedrone from the Cottonmouth Smokeshop (now closed) in June.

Police said the drug was packaged in a container labeled as XTC. The substance is commonly found in synthetic drugs.

A Taylor County grand jury indicted the pair for delivery of pentedrone.
