• Synthetic urine among items taken in Orlando warehouse raid


    ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Agents from the Drug Enforcement Agency said the Honey 2000 warehouse in Orlando was the largest drug paraphernalia distributor in central Florida history.

    When investigators raided the Bartlett Boulevard facility, they even confiscated fake urine.

    Channel 9's Anthony DiLorenzo learned that this isn't the first time the warehouse's owner has been in trouble with federal agents.

    The warehouse website and storefront are now shut down after agents raided the place over the past two days .

    Federal agents from the DEA loaded thousands of boxes of evidence into trucks Thursday afternoon.

    "Head shops around central Florida and the country carry this stuff," said Jeff Walsh, with the DEA, referring to items confiscated, including bongs, gas masks and even synthetic urine.

    Agents said the synthetic urine, marketed under the name X-Stream is supposed to help the user pass a urinalysis. They said the product is fairly new to the market.

    Agents allege Harmeet Singh wasn't new to the game.

    Agents first arrested the Windermere man in May.

    Singh was accused of running a $13 million synthetic drug operation out of the same Orlando warehouse.

    "He's an immigrant from India and supports a lot of people, employees and (is) active in the community," said attorney Singh's defense attorney Rick Jancha.

    Jancha said the law is hazy when it comes to defining drug paraphernalia.

    DEA agents said Singh knew exactly what he was selling.

    "Any items used to produced, store, consume a controlled substance as defined by federal law," said Walsh.

    Singh is out of jail. He's facing a separate trial for the synthetic drug case.

    Agents said if Singh is convicted he'll be deported to India.
