For the second time in less than a year two Gloucester smoke shops were raided by law enforcement officer for the sales of illicit synthetic drugs such as spice.

High Tyde Trading & Tobacco in Gloucester Point and Lutie's Lair Martial Arts Equipment in Hayes were raided about 10 a.m. on Thursday by a multi-jurisdiction law enforcement task force led by the Gloucester County Sheriff's Office.

Last year, A Lil of This N That on Crab Thicket Road and Hazy Dayz on Route 17 were raided and shut down and a dozen people were arrested. Those businesses were raided over the sales of spice and bath salts.

Sheriff Darrell Warren said more details will be made public later Thursday afternoon.
