Chinese K2 shipment intercepted before it reached Austin

AUSTIN (KXAN) - An Austin-bound shipment of an illegal synthetic cannabinoid from China was intercepted, according to police.

The two parcels each had a little more than one kilogram of K2 powder inside and were discovered in a controlled delivery sting. Keith Nunley, 51, was identified as a suspect and the U.S. Marshals have him in custody.

"The seizure of this undiluted powder represents numerous kilograms of finished synthetic cannabinoid (K2) product," the Austin Police Department wrote in a release.

The U.S. Postal Inspector, Drug Enforcement Agency Tactical Division Squad and Homeland Security all worked on the case.
