The Lubbock County District Attorney's office served search warrants at four smoke shops around town Thursday afternoon.
Officers could be seen confiscating bags of synthetic pot from the Smokin J's store near 50th and Quaker.
Officers also raided two Tobacco Road stores and Smokers choice on 34th street.

The District Attorney's Chief Investigator, Todd Smith, said this is just another step to get synthetic marijuana out of Lubbock. Last week the District Attorney's Office hand delivered letters to all 53 smoke shops in town, warning of the legal ramifications if caught selling synthetic marijuana.
Smith said his office will be following up these raids with arrest warrants related to violations of the law.

One person was arrested Thursday, a clerk at one of the stores who is facing class A misdemeanor charges for deceptive trade practices.
Smith said the District Attorney's Office will continue to monitor smoke shops in town, and visit stores on a regular basis.
