Major synthetic drug network busted in STL area

   Federal agents say a series of raids carried out across the metro area Wednesday were aimed a breaking up a major synthetic drug network.  

   Local law enforcement and at least five federal agencies teamed up to conduct simultaneous raids in St. Louis County, St. Charles County, Lincoln County and Jefferson County.  

   The DEA's acting agent in charge, James Shroba calls synthetic drugs a dangerous "new frontier" of drug use and abuse.  "They hook kids with the idea that these are legal, synthetic drugs, when in fact, we know they're not," he said.

   Shroba says yesterday's raids included sites that were being used to manufacture, package and distribute the drugs. "This is the tip of the iceberg," he said.  "This is a significant, synthetic drug operation."
