Khat seized after delivery to West Fargo motel

WEST FARGO - (KFGO-AM) -- West Fargo Police say drug task force agents have intercepted 113lbs. of the illegal stimulant "Khat."

It was shipped from overseas to a West Fargo motel. Police say it appears that the drug is getting mailed to other motels under different names. Someone is then calling the motels saying that they plan to stay there and ask the front desk to sign for the package for later pickup.

Motel employees have been alerted to contact police should they receive a suspicious call. In June, 36lbs. of Khat was seized locally.

Its grown in East Africa and some Arab countries.
