The Henderson Police Department says it has seized over $30,000 worth of marijuana products from businesses around the city.

HPD said its investigation began after a tip was made in July about the sale of marijuana at multiple businesses around Henderson, Kentucky.

The department says the products in question were labeled as "Delta 8" and "Delta 10," which are not illegal in Kentucky. Police say the products they were investigating included vape cartridges and gummies, and that the gummies looked like children's candy.

HPD says that after researching the products, members of the department performed controlled buys at 10 locations throughout Henderson and that each product that was purchased field tested positive for Delta 9 marijuana, which is illegal in Kentucky.

Police believe that the products were intentionally mislabeled to deceive the businesses and law enforcement.

HPD says that beginning on Oct. 26 and continuing until Nov. 10, members of the department seized over $30,000 in marijuana products.

The investigation remains ongoing at this time.

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some higher amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
