The home and businesses of Biloxi City Councilman Robert Deming, III. were raided Thursday by the Drug Enforcement Administration and other law enforcement officers.

Agents with the DEA executed search warrants at the councilman’s residence as well as six Candy Shop & Kratom stores throughout Mississippi and two locations in North Carolina, which are all owned by Deming.

Deming, who was elected to Biloxi’s city council in 2013, is involved in an ongoing federal investigation into the sale of controlled substances that began when authorities received complaints about the councilman’s stores possibly selling harmful illegal substances, allegedly resulting in multiple hospitalizations.

As of now, Deming has neither been arrested nor detained, and none of his shops have been shut down. However, the DEA has seized products suspected of containing illicit matter.
