$90,000 worth of 'Hydroponic Marijuana' shipped to south Abilene business

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - $90,000 worth of  'Hydroponic Marijuana' was seized after it was shipped to a business in south Abilene. 

Abilene police say they responded to the unnamed business last month after receiving a call regarding a suspicious package that smelled strongly of marijuana. 

A police K9 alerted on the package, so it was seized and transported to the Law Enforcement Center where a search warrant was executed, allowing officers to find 10 pounds of 'Hydroponic Marijuana' worth an estimated $90,000. 

Police say the package was shipped from California to Abilene.

KTAB and KRBC have asked if the package was randomly shipped to the business. It's also unknown if anyone has been arrested in connection to this crime.

APD also seized nearly 29 additional grams of narcotics, including methamphetamine, crack/cocaine, and marijuana, along with 26 prescription pills, between February 16 and February 27.

8 drug suspects - Jason Cooper, 33, Leeanna Keyton, 29, John Massey, 60, Susie Massey, 38, Alejandro Valero, 17, Mary Leija, 55, Corey Hale, 43, and Dinia Williams, 65 - were arrested during narcotic seizures at the following locations: 

  • 1900 block of N. Clack Street 
  • 2600 block of  Nonesuch Road
  • 2800 block of N. 5th Street
  • 600 block of Cockerell Drive

A south Abilene business was also raided within the past two weeks, resulting in the arrest of two individuals and the seizure of CBD, THC, and K2-style products. 

Abilene police are now warning businesses to stop selling CBD products and say they are aware of several locations violating this request.
