DEA agents found scores of chemical jugs, boxes of marshmallow leaf, a red sifter and trash bags and small branded packages of synthetic marijuana, or spice at a raid in Pinellas Park. It was a raid agents described as “a pretty big one.”

PINELLAS PARK —- U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents descended upon a rental garage unit in search of synthetic marijuana, or spice, Friday morning.

Agents found scales, dozens of one-gallon chemical jugs, a red metal sifter, boxes of organic marshmallow leaf and bulk synthetic marijuana in trash bags and in small branded packages in rental unit No. 2 at 4810 110th Ave N in Pinellas Park.

It was a raid agents described as "a pretty big one."

Agents on scene would not speak on the record. William Daniels, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office in Tampa, could only confirm that a federal search warrant was executed. That warrant is sealed.

Goran Odobasic, 41, works out of unit No. 4 as a carpenter. He met the two men from storage unit No. 2 for the first time a few days ago. He did not know their names.

Odobasic watched as the agents packed the contraband into cardboard boxes.

In 3 1/2 years of working out of the rental unit, he said, "I've never seen anything like this."
