West Virginia State Police have seized what is thought to be synthetic marijuana from the two Mountaineer Mart convenience stores in Randolph County.

The bust happened Wednesday at the Mountaineer Marts on Davis Avenue and Norton after authorities received tips from residents notifying them about the sale of the synthetic substance, police said.

According to authorities, it's estimated that the street value of the merchandise seized is $5,640.

The substance will be sent to the West Virginia State Police Drug Identification Lab in Charleston for testing.

Police said no charges have been filed; however, state police and the Randolph County Prosecutors Office are continuing an investigation.

Police said that any substance added to synthetic marijuana in an attempt to change the chemical makeup does not make the product legal.

Sgt. E.S. Kennedy and Sr. Trooper D.R. Wolford conducted the investigation.
