PARMA, Ohio - There's new evidence that synthetic drugs are a growing problem in Northeast Ohio.
Parma and Westlake police seized close to $1 million in synthetic drugs while serving search warrants in Westlake and North Olmsted last month.
Officers seized more than 61,000 containers filled with synthetic marijuana, according to Parma police spokesman Marty Compton. The drug is also known as "Spice" or "K-2."
Officers also seized the small quantity of the drug known as bath salts.
The search warrants, which were the result of a three-month investigation, also led to the seizure of more than $430,000 in cash.
Compton says the cash is believed to be profit from illegal drug sales. At this time, no one has been charged in this case.
Compton told NewsChannel5 their investigation is ongoing.
For details on the bust, watch investigator Sarah Buduson tonight on NewsChannel5 at 5 p.m.
