Federal officials said they raided a major synthetic marijuana lab in southwest Houston Thursday morning.
DEA officials said agents busted in to a warehouse in the 9000 block of Bellflower and Jeanetta.
When officials got inside the warehouse, they found a large amount of synthetic marijuana, also known as “K2” and “spice.” They also found large amounts of acetone and substances used to make the drug.
One neighbor told Local 2 she had long suspected something was going on in the warehouse and had even called police to investigate.
Rebecca Faulk said large trucks could be seen coming and going at all hours of the day and night.
On Thursday, her suspicions were confirmed.
“Knowing this has been going on in the area and we do have as many children as we do, thank God this is being taken care of. This is something that should not be on the streets at all,” said Faulk.
A DEA spokesperson said Thursday’s raid was part of an ongoing investigation, but did not release any other information.
