Officers seize K2 at Miller residence

Thursday, January 26, 2012

Drugs, including synthetic marijuana known as K2, were seized at a home in Miller following a multi-agency investigation last week.

A Lawrence County Sheriff's detective, the Department of Family Services and the Miller Police Department responded to a residence at 619 E. Main in Miller to check the well-being of a juvenile residing at the home. The call was answered on Jan. 12.

Four adults and one child were at home when officers arrived. During the investigation, a large amount of designer drugs were found at the house, along with a small amount of suspected marijuana and marijuana seeds, paraphernalia and plant cultivation materials.

The items were seized and will be sent to the Missouri State Highway Patrol crime lab for analysis.

"In August of 2011, all forms of synthetic marijuana were banned in Missouri," said Sheriff Brad DeLay. "These kinds of products are typically sold in packaging that says they do not contain banned ingredients, and in some cases, that they are not intended for human consumption."

The investigation is ongoing and formal charges are expected for the individuals involved.
