Hundreds of Pounds of Illegal Drug Seized in Treasure Valley
The Idaho State Police has scheduled an afternoon news conference to announce the seizure of hundreds of pounds of an illegal East African drug. Investigators tell us the shipment of khat was intercepted by U.S. Customs workers as it was moving through Boise.
Khat is a stimulant with effects similar to cocaine and meth, but not as intense.
Police will have samples of the evidence seized on hand and give further details on the investigation at the news conference at 3:00.
