LAS VEGAS -- Police say an investigation in Utah helped them find a synthetic drug lab in a warehouse just off the Las Vegas Strip.
Las Vegas police Lt. Laz Chavez tells the Las Vegas Sun that a SWAT team raided the building on Highland Drive a little after 4:30 p.m. Monday. They found synthetic cocaine and marijuana were being manufactured.
No one was there, and no arrests were made.
KLAS-TV reports that the Utah state attorney general and Logan, Utah, police were investigating illegal synthetic pot, dubbed "Spice," and fake cocaine known as bath salts, that were arriving in Utah.
Chavez tells the Sun that authorities recently intercepted a shipment of 500 pounds of synthetic drugs believed to have come from the Las Vegas warehouse.
