Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz says his deputies are executing search warrants at area gas station that are still selling bath salts. The Sheriff says his deputies are at three places – the B-P at Norwich, the Exxon Station on West Main Street and a third location. Lutz says today raids are part of an ongoing investigation with the Zanesville Police Department Drug Unit.  Lutz says his deputies have recovered bath salts.  No arrests have been made.  The owners of the businesses could face charges.  The State of Ohio banned the sale of the synthetic drug earlier this year. More details will be released later today.
