A one man scourage of synthetic drugs in several upstate cities, including Watertown, is out of the loop for some time.
John Tebbetts had pleaded out in a federal court in Syracuse to various drug and money laundering charges related to the head shops he ran that sold so called "bath salt's".
The phenomenon generated a lot of attention in a hurry and the Tebb's shops operated pretty audaciously with reports of whacked out customers hanging around on the curb in front of the shop on State Street in Watertown.
Tebbetts never seemed to try and hide what he was up to as his business plan was built on the notion that there were no laws regulating his product and that he was in essence untouchable.
That's why normally drug sales are done on the down low.....Doesn't seem the words "down" and "low" were in this fellow's vernacular.
