HOUSTON -- Agents stormed a southwest Houston warehouse where about $700,000 in synthetic marijuana was found along with the equipment to manufacture it, the Drug Enforcement Administration said Thursday.

The bust happened in the 9100 block of Bellflower Street just west of Fondren Road in the mid-morning hours.

The DEA said the bust was part of an on-going investigation, and there was no early word on if any arrests were made.

Views from Air 11 showed agents removing tanks and boxes from the warehouse.

Agents said about 70,000 packets of fake pot were removed from the property. There were several different brands being marketed on the packaging, the DEA said.
