Fremont police have seized synthetic drugs that mimic the effects of marijuana and cocaine in a two week sting operation.

Two local smoke shops sold "spice" along with salvia and "bath salts" to undercover officers.

The owner of Rocky's Smoke Shop at Crossroads Shopping Center and the manager of Monsters of Rock Smoke Shop in Irvington were charged in connection with the sale.

Police recovered illegal drugs with a street value of more than $25,000.
