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.
