Police: $500K in synthetic drugs seized in Pa.
READING, Pa. - February 24, 2012 (WPVI) -- Authorities say they seized a half-million dollars' worth of synthetic drugs in a series of retail store raids in three Pennsylvania counties.
Officials say the raids in Centre, Berks and Schuylkill counties netted synthetic marijuana and the synthetic stimulant known as bath salts.
A ban on bath salts and synthetic marijuana took effect last summer.
Berks County District Attorney John Adams says three loads of drugs and other items were taken from one store in a pickup truck.
Adams says one man owns at least four of the stores raided by police. No charges have been filed but the investigation is continuing.
