Illegal Drugs Found in Virginia Store, Clerks Face Criminal Charges
York-Poquoson Sheriff's Office officers found illegal drugs in a tobacco and e-cigarette shop in Virginia on September 15.

According to a report by WRIC on September 15th, law enforcement officers from the York-Poquoson Sheriff's Office in Virginia discovered numerous illegal drugs during a search at a tobacco and e-cigarette store in Yorktown. The confiscated items included Delta 8 cigarettes and pre-packaged marijuana.

 

According to statements from the police office, this operation is in response to complaints from parents and citizens who claim that this store frequently sells e-cigarettes to children under the age of 18 and also sells illegal products.

 

On Friday, September 15, the York Police Department, in collaboration with the Tri-Rivers Drug Task Force, executed a search warrant at the York Tobacco and E-Cigarette store located in Patriots Square shopping center.

 

The Public Security Office stated that officers have found Delta 8 pre-rolled cigarettes inside the store. The United States Drug Enforcement Administration defines this as "tobacco being removed from cigarettes and replaced with marijuana, sometimes mixed with other drugs." They also seized 26 containers of pre-packaged marijuana, 84 packages of liquid THC, and synthetic marijuana.

 

The Public Security Office claims that two shop employees are set to face criminal charges.
