Inside Police Reports: Man Busted with 'Black Death'

Lilburn PD makes arrest for possession of fake pot in the parking lot of a Walgreens.

Four young men loitering in a drew the attention of a officer on May 20. They were up to no good.

As the officer watched the men — ages 20 to 27 — he saw one of them place a metal tube in his mouth and light the top. When the office approached the group he found that the tube was a modified aluminum pen with a hole drilled into the top.

"I asked [him] what the aluminum tube was for," Officer Echevarria wrote in the incident report, "and he stated that he was using it to smoke his herbal potpourri and handed me a packet of Black Death exotic potpourri."

The contents of the packet was a "green leafy substance similar to suspected marijuana," according to the report, and the man was handcuffed and put in the patrol car while the substance was field-tested.

The test was positive for synthetic marijuana, also known as K2. The man, 20, a Lilburn resident, was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, Schedule I.

The other three men were cited for criminal trespass.
