GLYNN CO., GA (WTOC) -

More people are sick after using synthetic drugs. Investigators say the total has almost doubled to 21 people getting sick in the Glynn County area from using drugs like Crazy Clown, also known as incense or spice.

Investigators said they believe most of those people got the drug from Mary Jane's Emporium in Brunswick.

Police have arrested and charged Parker LaRoche, Sean LaRoche, and James Thompson on several counts of possession and intent to distribute a controlled Schedule I substance. Lawrence LaRoche was also arrested and charged with giving a false name.

Investigators raided Mary Jane's Emporium and a house on Fourth Avenue and said they believe these guys were making the synthetic drug and selling it.

The GBI conducted tests and released a report declaring it a Schedule I drug, meaning it has no medicinal purpose. This is still an ongoing investigation, but Glynn County Police Chief Matt Doering said they have already confiscated several pounds.

"It's another example of how it illustrates how difficult the investigators have identifying the chemicals because on face value, you can't look at it and say it's illegal," Doering said. 

He believes more people are out there selling it.

If you have any information, you are asked to contact the Glynn County Police Dept. at 912.554.7550.
