MOUNT PLEASANT, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas doughnut shop was serving more than pastries after a Friday investigation found synthetic marijuana was being sold from the location during business hours.

According to a police report, the drugs were found at Mt. Pleasant Donuts in the 500 block of West Ferguson Street. The restaurant, which primarily sells breakfast sandwiches, pastries and drinks, had been investigated for several months as detectives purchased illegal substances while undercover.

Search and arrest warrants were obtained for the location and owners and Mount Pleasant police and Titus County Sheriff Narcotic Criminal Investigations Units conducted the search. 

Officials executed the search about 10:30 a.m. and arrested 27-year-old Anna Heng, of Lone Star. Bun Leng Siv, 31, of Lone Star, arrived at the location a short time later and was also arrested. Heng and Siv were booked into Titus County Jail on possession and sale of a schedule-1 controlled substance. Bond has not been set.

A further search of the business found money from narcotics transactions and illegal substances packaged for sale. Food code violations were also found. Police contacted city health officials and the organization closed the business.

Under state law, the possession of the drug is a Class-A misdemeanor violation.

Synthetic cannabinoids or synthetic marijuana is a designer drug in which herbs, incense or other leafy materials are sprayed with lab-synthesized liquid chemicals to mimic the effect of tetrahydro cannabinol, or THC, the ingredient in naturally grown marijuana plants. Synthetic marijuana, also known by the name of “Spice” or “K2” first became available in the U.S. around 2008, police reports said.

    Many parents are angry after finding out there is a chance their child might not be able to attend pre-kindergarten for the upcoming school year. 

    A family's income has to be below 185 percent of the federal poverty guidelines to be accepted into a pre-K program with Calcasieu Parish Schools. 

    Unfortunately, many families who applied didn't meet those requirements, and have received a letter saying they've been wait listed.
