Police: Synthetic drugs confiscated from boutique

ONTARIO — METRICH and Ontario police confiscated what they believe to be synthetic drugs from a boutique on West Fourth Street on Tuesday.

No arrests were made at Twilight Boutique, 2032 W. Fourth St., but charges are expected to be forwarded to the Richland County Prosecutor’s Office, METRICH Commander Ken Coontz said.

Ontario police Chief Rodney Smith said the city passed an ordinance April 4 that prohibits the sale and manufacture of synthetic drugs in the city.

“That particular law has been on the books for several years but the change was to add and cover the new compounds,” Smith said. “We’ve had complaints on it and had at least one person who we found unresponsive and claims that the stuff that they had ingested came from this particular place.”

A store employee was interviewed by authorities as members of law enforcement boxed up products and merchandise.

She declined comment Tuesday afternoon.

Numerous large hookahs were on display in the store’s windows. Hookahs, large devices used for smoking, are legal here.

Authorities could be seen picking up pipes and other products, sifting through the display cases and carrying them out to police vans.

Posters of the Beatles and Bob Marley, ponchos and other merchandise filled the spacious store.
