ST. LOUIS (KPLR) – Federal agents are conducting drug raids across the St. Louis area to crack down on the synthetic drug trade. SWAT entered Nights of Rave on Page Avenue Wednesday morning, while simultaneously entering the 94 Bait and Tackle Shop in St. Charles County.
They were looking for synthetic drugs such as the cocaine like powders hidden in the packaging labeled 'bath salts.' FOX 2 first exposed the 'bath salt' danger back in 2010. Federal agents also searched the home of a woman connected to the shops.
