  • Herkimer police seized more than 200 packages of illegal synthetic drugs from Tebb's Headshop on Main Street Thursday and charged a clerk there with violating a local law prohibiting the sale or possession of synthetic substances.
    Police said they seized hundreds of packages of a product being sold as "glass cleaner" from the store. The substance, more commonly refered to as "bath salts" can mimic the effect of other controlled substances once ingested, police said. They also seized a quantity of synthetic marijuana being sold as "potpourri."
    The clerk, Alexander Grzesik, 30, of Utica, was ticketed for possession of a synthetic substance, police said.
