Gas Station Police Raid

Chillicothe Police confiscate thousands in drug-type products from a Chillicothe convenience store.

The police there say the conoco 7th heaven on North Washington was selling items labeled as incense, but that have been laboratory tested as having traces of K-2. That's the chemical that mirrors the effects of marijuana and that was banned in Missouri in August of last year. Police say they have taken about $6,000 worth of the incense products. The Chillicothe department says they have had recent encounters with local teens and adults using the smokeable incense. Also taken at the conoco were relaxation brownies being sold for around $5, various brands of rolling papers and smoking pipes, and numerous other items that police say could be determined to be drug paraphernalia. The incense has been sent to a laboratory for further testing. The Chillicothe police say arrests are pending.
