PORTAGE COUNTY -- Two people have been arrested and booked into the Portage County Jail following an investigation into the alleged sale of synthetic drugs known as Bath Salts and K-2 Spice.
According to the Portage County Drug Task Force, Robert J. Schormik III, 35, and Tara Nicole Toth, 24, both of Ravenna are charged with trafficking. Toth also is charged with obstructing justice and is being held on outstanding warrants out of Cuyahoga County for forgery.
Following a three-month long investigation, task force members executed search warrants at the Flyin High Novelty store in Streetsboro and the house shared by Schormik and Toth.
The task force says it had received numerous complaints that Bath Salts were being sold at the store. The task force says a number of the store's customers are juveniles.
As part of an undercover investigation, the Portage County Task Force says Bath Salts and K-2 spice were purchased. Task force members recovered more than 1.5 kilos of K-2 Spice found hidden above the ceiling tile at the novelty store. The task force says a search of the owner's home recovered additional drugs.
The case is being presented to a grand jury.
