— Nearly $20,000 worth of K-2, or synthetic marijuana, has been kept off the streets after Port Arthur police discovered it in a home in the 3500 block of Ninth Street in Port Arthur.
Officers responding to a burglar alarm around 6:30 p.m. Monday, August 13 found the door to a residence had been forced open. They entered the house to search for possible suspects and once inside they saw several cardboard boxes filled with fake marijuana, also known as K-2. No one else was inside the home.
A search warrant was then obtained and while looking though the home a very large amount of K-2 was located. The approximate street value of the drugs is between $15,000 to $20,000, police also found over $6,000 dollars in cash at the residence.
This case remains under investigation by the Port Arthur Police Department Narcotics and Street Crimes Unit.
