(West Plains) – Two people are under arrest pending charges after the serving of a search warrant in West Plains netted police over over 100 canisters that contained smokeable spices and synthetic cannibanoids.
Officers with the West Plains Police Department served a search warrant at 1223 St. Louis Street in West Plains on Wednesday, August 29 around 2 PM, where numerous boxes and canisters that either had contained or still contained Code Black, a suspected synthetic cannabinoid like the banned substance known as K2, were found.
Different companies that distribute the suspected cannabinoids call them many different things, like “incense” or “spices”.
The canisters of the substance ranged in size from 1.5 grams to 1.2 ounce canisters. Many empty canisters were reportedly recovered from the trash outside the home, while other canisters were still in retail boxes and wrapped inside the home. Also picked up in the search was four packages of another brand of synthetic cannibanoids, smoking pipes, small plastic bags and other items.
Police Department Detective Bryan Brauer says that a 9 mm Taurus handgun was also taken from the home.
The two men were arrested and held pending charges from the search warrant. Brauer says that neither of the suspects lived at the house.
One of the suspects, a West Plains resident, was also arrested on an unrelated outstanding warrant out of Mountain View for Stealing and Trespassing, while the other suspect from Willow Springs was held on an unrelated Willow Springs warrant for Trespassing.
