ONEIDA, N.Y. -- Authorities moved in on at the Tebb's Head Shop on Main Street in Oneida on Wednesday. This was one of 10 Tebb's locations region wide that we're told was raided.
Officers say they seized hundreds and hundreds of bags, jars and vials of synthetic drugs just at the Oneida store alone. They say they itemized exactly what they seized, which will be part of the larger case.
Narcotics officers say it's primarily what's called "bath salts," but also other synthetics. They also showed us drugs that mimic prescription medications.
A synthetic marijuana, Carefree Potpourri, is what one customer was waiting outside of the shop to buy, even during the raid. He says he's glad the drugs are gone.
"I'm spending $30 a day almost trying to get something. It's not right. It's too addictive. And it's giving people way too many problems," said Joshua Wojcik.
Officers say the drugs will go to a lab for testing to see exactly what's in them, despite what labels may or may not say.
