A synthetic stimulant that is found in so-called “bath salts” has shown up in Chico. 22 year old James Hall was arrested for possession of a synthetic stimulant for sale after local drug agents observed him allegedly receiving a package of ‘methylone’ from China. Jeff Smith with the Butte Interagency Narcotics Task Force says the drug acts a lot like methamphetamine. He adds the half pound seized has a street value of about 6 thousand dollars.
