New Port Richey, Fla.-(970 WFLA)-State Attorney General Pam Bondi and Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco say deputies have been taking part in something called "Operation Consequence."
Sheriff's deputies have been visiting convenience stores to find outlets selling synthetic drugs. Deputies have been warning stores that selling the fake pot, known as Spice, K-2 and many other names, was illegal. But, some stores have continued selling the drugs.
Deputies say they made undercover buys of the synthetic drugs at the Super K on U.S. 19 in Hudson, the Mobil store on Massachusetts Avenue in New Port Richey and at Boost Mobile on Grand Boulevard in Holiday.
Four clerks at the three locations have been arrested for the sale and possession of a controlled substance and for violating a Pasco ordinance on the sale of synthetic drugs.
