In a recent operation, Grand Rapids police conducted searches at two local smoke shops as part of an investigation related to a homicide case in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The suspect in the case, Julian Kelley, who is now in custody, was reportedly a frequent visitor to both locations of Flavors Smoke Shop, situated at 517 Leonard St NW and 2332 Division Ave S, as per the Grand Rapids Police Department.

During the search, authorities discovered a significant amount of illegal substances. This included over 30 pounds of bulk marijuana, numerous retail-sized packages of marijuana buds, THC vape cartridges, and THC-infused edibles. Additionally, stolen property was recovered at the scene. Some of the seized items are believed to be similar to products recently stolen from legally operating dispensaries in the area.

According to police reports, the Flavors Smoke Shop locations are not authorized to sell cannabis or THC products.

Chief Eric Winstrom of the Grand Rapids Police Department expressed satisfaction with the operation, particularly as it supported the Milwaukee police in their murder investigation and revealed criminal activities affecting the Grand Rapids community. He anticipates further developments and potential arrests as the investigation proceeds, praising the collaborative effort of the detectives and local law enforcement agencies involved.
