Lake County investigators confiscate designer drugs, guns, $100K
    #633351 - 07/31/12 04:24 PM (4 years, 4 months ago)

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/suburbs/gurnee/chi-lake-county-investigators-confiscate-drugs-guns-100k-20120726,0,669895.story

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office officials said today that investigators confiscated 22 kilograms of the popular "designer drug" K-2, guns, heroin, cannabis and almost $100,000 in cash following a three month undercover drug investigation targeting retail stores.

"What it really means is what we've done for the community," said Chief Wayne Hunter, of the Lake County Sheriff's Department. "We took 22 kilograms of K-2 off the street. This is the new plague upon our land. This stuff is geared toward children, kids."

He said the sheriff’s office executed six search warrants and made buy at various businesses in Lake County during the investigation.  K-2, also know as "spice" and a slew of other street names, has generated controversy across the Midwest, Hunter said.

"It's sold under the counter," he said. "It's not legal. It's a controlled substance. From my perspective it's far worse than smoking marijuana. The kids that are smoking K-2 are smoking chemical compounds."

Police said search warrants were served on at least six Lake County businesses in the last week said and various amounts of drugs, cash, weapons and property have been seized by investigators.

Investigators allegedly found 1,894 grams of K-2, in individually 568 wrapped packages in the Ma & Pa’s Grocery store at 37737 Green Bay Road in Beach Park. Sammer Z. Kartoum, 31 of the same address, has been charged with felony unlawful possession of controlled substance and unlawful delivery of controlled substance, police said.

"It's mostly people under 23 that are buying it," Hunter said.

He said the investigation continues, and more felony charges are expected against other store owners in the next few weeks.

"It's a very complicated process," he said. "We have to do three drug buys from every location in order to ask for a warrant. In addition, because it's such a new drug, it's a designer drug, we actually have to collect lab reports identifying this substance as being named in the controlled substances act, before we can act."
