LIVINGSTON — The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office confiscated more than 900 packets of “synthetic drugs,” according to a Wednesday news release.
Officers from the Sheriff’s Office, State Police and municipal police departments in Livingston Parish contacted 58 stores Tuesday, Chief Criminal Deputy Jason Ard said in the release.
Only two of the stores had any of the products in their inventories, Ard said.
One of the stores is south of Denham Springs and the other is in Albany, said Perry Rushing, a Sheriff’s Office spokesman.
The value of each of the individual packets ranged from
$2 to $25, Ard said in the news release.
The products were labeled as “potpourri” and were made illegal by recent additions to the list of Controlled Dangerous Substances.
The change was effective July 15, the release says.
