Authorities in Clark County continued their pursuit of illegal drug operations in the area with multiple busts this week.
On Wednesday, the Drug Enforcement Agency spearheaded a nationwide takedown of synthetic drug labs and distributors in a first-of-its kind raid. Agents targeted an operation in Las Vegas as part of the multi-city operation.
As a result, almost 5 million packages of synthetic marijuana and 167,000 packets of "bath salts" were seized across the country.
The DEA said the nationwide crackdown was necessary to keep the manufactured drugs from endangering people.
Local law enforcement agencies also took down separate marijuana growth operations on Thursday.
