The Lexington Police raided them and arrested all the employees and one guy that was just there. Said they were selling the illegal incense blends. From what I understand, they weren't, but it doesn't matter to the police. They charged all the employees with trafficking in a controlled substance...felony charges. They then proceeded to search all the employee's cars. Nothing is right about this whole mess. Even if they were selling the synthetic cannabanoids (that's what they are implying was in the incense blend) it's still just a misdemeanor according to the Kentucky Statues. Not sure what's going on, but the lawyers are hard at work.

You might want to call your local news and ask why a major bust with so many felony warrents is not worth covering. This wreaks of corruption at the state level.

Why would the police not go after the other stores selling white lighting and all that?

busting people for crimes is their job. selling drugs is a crime. you might not like the law, but you can't blame the cops for doing their job. if you wanna get pissed, blame whoever snitched on the botany bay and then blame the guys from the botany bay who are going to snitch on others to get out of this

botany bay was not selling anything containing the illegal chemical in question and had paperwork on hand proving as much. also the random guy that was there not as an employee was also searched along with his car. they took all they blunt wraps and broke some glass pieces. guns drawn handcuffed everyone over a misdemeanor when they could have peacefully executed a search warrant. but god forbid the police act like human beings. assholes.

Wonder why they would bust them? For selling neon signs? I hardly think so. The business was a FRONT for a drug dealership. Let's see if they can prove differently in court. I doubt it. Good job, LPD!

well, if they really were busted for something illegal then I stand corrected...I went in there once a few months ago to see what kind of store it was and they seemed like cool people...but the law is the law, I guess I jumped the gun a little, I was misinformed apparantly in the beginning

Bastards. They've been selling for a long time. I hope they confiscate the building and the property.

Didn't this store get busted for selling illegal herbal incense products that people use to get high? House bill 265 out lawed these products yet this store kept selling them. Why would they keep doing that? Makes people afriad to go in stores when they sell crazy stuff like that.I think I'll go to sqecial media where they keep everything legal. Here's where another store got busted for the same thing: http://www.fox41.com/story/13919151/cops-make...

Exotic Herbals and Botany Bay were busted last week for selling illegal incesne smoking products. I thought they would never go after that, I mean I heard it was outlawed months ago ,but they kept selling it at both stores for monthes afterward. I guess it was just a matter of time. I know everyone is like, it's not drugs- it's incense how can the outlaw it? But come on, we all know better than that. If it's being used like drugs, then it pretty much is a drug. I wonder if they got the felony charge for it, because it was moved up to schedule one controlled substance like cocanie. I guess wayne and ron are going to prison. That sucks, everyone liked wayne. That sucks for everyone. There were a lot of people going to that store. I guess its all over now.
