MARYDEL, Md.- Police in Caroline County say they seized more than 4,000 packages of synthetic marijuana, along with a substantial amount of cash, during a raid of a Marydel convenience store.

Maryland State Police said that on Wednesday afternoon, members of the Caroline County Drug Task Force executed the warrant at Sam's Main Street Market, located at 323 Main St. in Marydel. The store was closed more than two hours while police searched the premises.

According to police, the search warrant execution was the culmination of a year-long investigation into the sale of synthetic marijuana, also referred to as K-2, Spice, and numerous other street names.

Authorities said personnel from the task force had performed several undercover purchases of suspected synthetic marijuana during the investigation in which a portion of the substances purchased were found to be currently listed by the Drug Enforcement Administration as an illegal controlled dangerous substances of Schedule I, the same as marijuana.

Police said approximately 4,700 packages of suspected synthetic marijuana were seized, along with $1,287 in cash. The street value is approximately $160,000, police said.

No arrests have been made at this time, as police said the case will be reviewed by the Caroline County State's Attorney Jonathan Newell. The investigation is ongoing.

The Caroline County Drug Task Force was assisted by personnel from the Caroline County Sheriff's Office, the Talbot County Narcotics Task Force, MSP Barrack "I" Easton and the MSP Criminal Enforcement Division.
