According to the incident report, when the officer approached, “I noticed several boxes containing several small packages inside of them,” including one labeled “Black Death,” the name of a form of synthetic marijuana, also known as “K2.”
Also found were packages labeled “Green Hornet,” “Aztec Warrior,” “Aztec Red,” and “Sexy,” and stacks of stickers with “ATL” printed on them.
Suspecting the substances were banned synthetic narcotics, police obtained a search warrant. Some of the names are listed on the GBI’s list of banned substances.
Police confiscated more than 1,700 packages. Also found was $1,885 in cash — broken down into 53 $20 bills, 45 $10 bills and 75 $5 bills.
One of the men said he had proof that the substances were legal in Georgia. “He continued to state some of the companies are using old packages and giving us [“ATL”] stickers to place over the old name and making it something different,” the reporting officer wrote.
The substances were confiscated to be sent to the GBI Crime Lab for testing. Charges are pending.
