PHOENIX (AP) - Police have arrested three Arizona residents for manufacturing and distributing synthetic marijuana, often known as K2 or Spice, in Arizona, New Mexico and California.

Special agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration and Casa Grande police seized more than 500 pounds of Spice and $500,000 during an undercover operation in Casa Grande on Monday.

A spokesman for the DEA says police arrested Phoenix resident Geoffrey Turner as the head of the distribution network that sold local Spice brand “Headrush” to primarily Phoenix locations. Turner and two other individuals face charges including drug possession, manufacture and transportation for sale.

After seizing the synthetic marijuana, DEA agents and police dismantled a large manufacturing facility in Phoenix where they found ingredients and cement mixers used to blend synthetic marijuana.
