Sheriff's spokeswoman Shannon Volkodav told local media outlets that authorities were helping the Department of Homeland Security execute a search warrant at a home in Norcross Thursday, and were exposed to the drug while taking a suspect into custody.<br />
Volkodav says the exposure caused skin and eye irritation to eight officers who were on the scene.<br />
