NYPD Confiscates $10 Million Haul of Synthetic Weed

BRONX, NEW YORK (BRONX NEWS)- Local and federal law enforcement officials raided a garage on the Morris Park / Castle Hill border and confiscated 2 million packets of the designer drug K-2, worth an estimated value of $10 million.

A task-force made up from members of the NYPD, DEA and Homeland Security raided the large garage located at 2424 Poplar Street on September 23.

The drug, also called "Spice" is synthetic marijuana that was stashed in laundry bags and heavy-duty containers and was ready for distribution when the take-down occurred.

Officials would only say the seizure was related to a K-2 ring that was smashed in the borough on September 16. Ten suspects were charged with distributing the drug that's being sold in bodegas across the city.

Meanwhile, Senator Jeff Klein and other law makers have gotten pledges from more than 1,700 bodega owners who agreed to never sell the drug that's responsible for over 700 emergency room visits since May.
