Abilene Police assisted agents from the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) as they raided two Abilene smoke Shops. 

Abilene Police Chief Stan Standridge said in a press conference that they've been investigating several smoke shops around Taylor Co. since March in an effort to crack down on selling illegal chemicals like synthetic cannabinoids, often referred to as K2. 

As of Wednesday afternoon, police say they are positive that there are no longer any smoke shops in the county that are selling the product. 

They also say that although so far only two arrests have been made in connection with the investigation, more may come.
