BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA — A suspect is facing charges for possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia after agents with the Special Investigations Unit discovered several individual bags of synthetic cannabis also known as K2 inside the store he managed.
Falak Sher, 37, is being held under a $2,500 bond at the Brevard County Jail. Agents arrested him on Thursday at his store, a Chevron located at 1990 Michigan Avenue.
According to Yvonne Martinez of the Cocoa Police Department, the investigation began in mid-February when agents received information that Sher was selling the K2 drug from inside his store.
“The investigation revealed at least two patrons of the store suffered cardiac arrest after using the synthetic drug,” said Martinez.
“They recovered after receiving emergency medical attention. After continued surveillance and undercover operations, agents obtained enough probable cause for a search warrant of the business.”
The warrant was executed on Thursday at which time the synthetic drugs were found stashed in a drop ceiling in a back storage room.
