Agents of the Special Operations Division of the Abilene Police Department, assisted by the Taylor County Sheriff's Office, executed a search warrant at a north side business located at 4801 Pine Street Friday afternoon.
The smoke shop, known as "XOTICA," also serves as a men's club and adult superstore.
APD said the search warrant stemmed from information gained by agents investigating the possible sale of an illegal substance, particularly alpha-Pyrrolidinopentiophenone, also known as "A-PVP." The substance is more commonly known by the generic term "bath salts."
Substances identified in the search warrant were seized and will later be submitted for lab analysis, according to APD.
No one has been arrested in connection to the warrant. An officer on scene told us criminal charges may be filed at a later date, pending laboratory analysis.
