Like water rising, very silently federal Drug Enforcement officers (DEA) slid into Fort Bend County and raided a warehouse in Rosenberg.
Last week, Operation Log Jam filtered across the nation in busts that removed millions of dollars’ worth of synthetic drugs from distribution and sales points.
Interestingly, DEA agents served a search warrant on a warehouse south of US 59 of FM 2218 in far south Rosenberg without any notification to the Fort Bend County Drug Task Force. Items taken by the DEA agents from the Reece Road warehouse were packets containing synthetic or designer drugs known as incense, bath salts, plant food or spice.
According to county records, the warehouse raided by DEA agents contains property belonging to TKO Unlimited which is also listed on the internet as TKO Herbs and Spices, at that address as was well as in Needville. While products were removed, no arrests were reported at the Rosenberg location.
This nationwide crackdown on designer drugs and the ever changing chemical concoction that causes the “high” are scheduled to continue. The Fort Bend County raid last week was just one in over 100 cities across the United States and Canada. Reportedly, some 90 arrests were made, $36 million in cash was confiscated, and millions of packets of the designer bath salts, plant food, and incense were removed from public consumption.
