Omaha Drug Bust Nets 5 Arrests including Juvenile; Psychedelic, Fentanyl Confiscated: Police Report

Omaha, NB: The Omaha drug operation, which resulted in the seizure of more than fifty pounds of marijuana and approximately one hundred and fifty thousand dollars in cash, was the subject of five arrest warrants, one of which included a juvenile.

Goodies Vape & Tobacco, on the corner of North 90th and Lake Street, has reportedly been the subject of an investigation by the Omaha Police Department’s Narcotics Squad.

During their investigation of the store on Thursday, detectives found and confiscated a “large amount” of illicit THC products, hallucinogenic substances, and weapons. Investigators also raided a residence close to Goodies, at the corner of North 90th and Parker Street. Authorities found 54 pounds of marijuana and around $140,000 in cash at the apartment.

Goodies owner Yaser Shohatee, 36, was the subject of a third search warrant, which led to the discovery of firearms, narcotics documentation, and around $8,000 in cash at his west Omaha apartment. The police assert that Shohatee was armed when apprehended and that, during an interview, he confessed to selling illicit goods at his store.
