HERRIN, IL (KFVS) -

Herrin police busted a business for selling synthetic drugs.

Shortly before 3 p.m., Southern Illinois Drug Task Force agents moved in on Gift World in Herrin. This is across the street from the city hall.

They removed several boxes full of K-2 and other illegal synthetic drugs, including bath salts. Police also removed numerous boxes full of drug paraphernalia.

Jerry W. Smith, 53, of Herrin is charged with two counts of delivery of a look-a-like substance and possession of a controlled substance.

Smith is the owner of the story and has been arrested for the selling and distribution of illegal synthetic drugs.

The store was shut down in January of 2011 for a synthetic marijuana, also known as K-2, bust.
