Eustis gas station among 7 raided in K-2 bust


EUSTIS, Fla. —

Agents for the Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco raided a Lake County gas station along Lakeview Avenue on Monday, WFTV learned.

Several agents were at the Kars Petro gas station in Eustis, and authorities said it’s just one of seven raids happening across Lake County.

The bust also involves drug agents and the controversial synthetic marijuana known as K-2, officials said.

Authorities said there were four law enforcement agencies involved in the bust, including Eustis police, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, the Drug Enforcement Agency and the Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco, which is a state agency.

WFTV was at the scene when agents pulled out boxes from the gas station, full of counterfeit purses, tobacco and K-2, according to officers.

The illegal drug is a mixture of herbs and spices that is sprayed with a synthetic chemical similar to THC, which is found in marijuana.

Six other locations across the county are also being raided.

No other details are available at this time.

WFTV.com will update the story as it develops.

  1. smarty, it’s only ‘legal’ because the manufacturers keep changing the formula. Maybe we should let the kids buy it. It will clean out the gene pool. Don’t say it, neither my kids or grand kids are stupid enough to buy it.

  2. The author needs to make it clear that synthetic marijuana is still legal. It is NOT an illegal substance. In fact, the Cloud 9 shop that was raided the other day was raided because the DEA “thought” it “might” be a “potentially illegal” substance “possibly” being used counter to intention. They’re going to hold it all hostage and test it and then give the owner of the store a tax write off at the end of the year — isn’t that kind of them? This substance can still be purchased LEGALLY at any number of stores in central Florida.
