DULUTH - Authorities have seized 20,000 packets of suspected synthetic marijuana from a Duluth head shop as part of a nationwide crackdown led by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration says Wednesday's raid on the Last Place on Earth also netted two assault rifles, three handguns and about $20,000 in cash. Authorities also seized about $2.8 million from the store owner's bank accounts and two vehicles.
Three customers were arrested on outstanding warrants unrelated to the investigation.
Calls left for store owner Jim Carlson and his attorney were not returned Thursday.
Nationwide, the DEA seized more than $36 million in cash and arrested 91 people in a crackdown against manufacturers, distributors and vendors of synthetic designer drugs. Agents in 31 states also seized 4.9 million packets of synthetic marijuana and 167,000 packages of bath salts.
