Police found an estimated $80,000 worth of THC vaping cartridges and other marijuana products in a recent raid of a Genoa City residence, according to a press release.
The Walworth County Drug Unit served a search warrant Wednesday in the 400 block of Franklin Street and arrested a 36-year-old man, said Capt. Robert Hall. Online court records show the man had not been charged as of Saturday.
Police found $10,000 in cash along with THC cartridges, THC edibles, THC wax, hashish and several pounds of marijuana. Hall credited the community with helping identify the location.
A picture from the bust shows hundreds of cartridges labeled with the Dank Vapes brand. Health officials in Wisconsin and Illinois warned Friday that the commonly counterfeited brand has been linked to many vaping-linked lung illnesses in the two states.
In Wisconsin, early reports from teen and young adult patients revealed that individuals with confirmed lung injuries reported vaping nicotine, THC or both.
