CNT: Large amount of bath salts seized
Two people were arrested and charged after a large amount of bath salts were seized by the by the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team.
CNT undercover agents got a tip earlier this month that there was a large amount of Molly, which is a pure form of Ecstasy, in the Savannah area.
Agents investigation and identified the undisclosed location on Savannah's east side.
Darius Collins, 21, and Lance Flesher, 22, were arrested Aug. 21 without incident, according to the CNT. They're charged with several felony-related drug charges and remain at the Chatham County Detention Center.
CNT agents determined that the substance was bath salts and not Molly.
Bath salts are usually stimulants and can be considered a substitute for Ecstasy, users who think they are taking Ecstasy unknowingly on occasion have ingested bath salts, according to the CNT.
The estimated street value of the seized bath salts varies depending if the substance is sold as bath salts or a Molly. The estimated street value could be up to $300,000 if it is sold as Molly, according to the CNT.
CNT Director Everette Ragan said in a statement: "Bath salts are an emerging and dangerous product and I urge parents, teachers and the public to be aware of the potential dangers associated with these drugs."
