Some of the items look like cookies, brownies, gummy bears and other candy. But they're not.

They're among the hundreds of illegal drugs seized at the Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival last weekend.

The Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office put out amnesty boxes for people to leave the illegal stuff at the gate, no questions asked, before being searched by a K-9.

The K-9 deputies also sniffed people's cars in the parking lot.

Here's a look at what deputies seized: (amounts are estimates)

  • 6 pounds hydroponic marijuana
  • 150 hits of LSD
  • 50 capsules of Molly
  • 150 paraphernalia items such as pipes bongs and marijuana grinders
  • 1 ounce of marijuana resin
  • 200 pre-rolled marijuana cigarettes
  • 30 LSD dip cigarettes
  • 2 pounds of edible marijuana cookies and brownies etc.
  • 14 g of cocaine HCl
  • 12 g of meth
  • 100 hits of Ecstasy
  • 25 marijuana candies like gummy bears
  • 10 g of liquid LSD
  • 10 g of powder mollies
  • Five sets of digital scales
  • 1 1/2 ounce mushrooms
  • 57 nitrous oxide whippets
  • Various prescription medication such as Xanax and oxycodone.

Deputies made 21 arrests.

"We welcome anyone that travels to Okeechobee for the music fest and encourage them to enjoy the festival, however we will do all we can to eliminate as many drugs coming into Okeechobee County," said Sheriff Noel E. Stephen.

The Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office thanked all the other agencies who took part, including the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office which arrested nearly 100 people on drug and other charges in a 2-day crackdown prior to the festival.
