Ocean City Mounted Patrol Officers Get Tip From Citizen- OC Narcotics Detectives Take Action
On Tuesday, undercover Ocean City Police Department detectives conducted a compliance check at the May Talk store on Atlantic Avenue.
The officers were able to purchase K-2 and an employee also told them how to use the drug in a pipe to get high.
Officers went back to the store with a warrant on Thursday and recovered several items including K-2, Salvia, bath salts, CDS paraphernalia and several fixed-blade fighting knives.
Ocean City Police mounted patrol officers received information from a citizen regarding the sale of “K-2” sold at “May Talk”, a boardwalk retail store located at 205 Atlantic Avenue.
The Ocean City Mayor and City Council recently passed an emergency ordinance banning the sale of synthetic drugs including K-2.
Since the passing of the emergency ordinance, Ocean City Police have proactively educated storeowners and managers by providing copies of the ordinances as well as conducting several checks to ensure compliance of the ordinance. Some contraband was found in a hidden compartment in a display case located next to the cash register. The owner admitted they have been selling the saliva in spite of the ordinance enacted banning the substance last year.
