MONACA (KDKA) — Complaints about what was allegedly being sold at the CoGo’s convenience store in Monaca, Beaver County, resulted in a raid Thursday by the DEA, Monaca Police and the DA’s office.

The store was shut down for more than an hour as what is believed to be synthetic marijuana was confiscated along with glass pipes, Brillo pads and a grinder.

Beaver County District Attorney Anthony Berosh showed KDKA’s Brenda Waters all of the evidence and says the search was prompted by complaints from people in the neighborhood.

Berosh says the store remains open because it is making small steps. If the lab confirms that the evidence was indeed synthetic marijuana his office will proceed from there.

When asked if investigators will keep an eye in the store, Berosh responded, “You bet.”
