Chicago Police seize dangerous and illegal substance packaged as "Scooby Snax"


Synthetic marijuana packaged for the young set

Thousands of foil packets emblazoned with an image of the cartoon character “Scooby-Doo” and labeled “Scooby Snax 4G,”  were seized by the Chicago Police. They contained containing synthetic marijuana.

Apparently intended to be marketed to a young segment of the population, the seized package contained approximately 16,783 grams of the substance. Street value of the content is over $265,000. It was the Chicago Police Department’s Package Interdiction Team that determined the package contained the illegal and dangerous substance.

Though the Package Interdiction Team is frequently called upon to investigate suspicious packages of this nature, this is the first time they have encountered Synthetic Marijuana packaged with the “Scooby-Doo” character.

“This was great work by our Package Interdiction Team and great coordination of efforts between agencies,” said James O'Grady, Commander of the Narcotics Division. “Synthetic Marijuana poses a significant public health risk and it is important to keep this product from hitting our streets.”

While Chicago police personnel continue to investigate, no arrests have been made in connection with this incident.
