Police find LSD in the form of Sweet Tarts during traffic stop

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Ten hits of acid in the form of Sweet Tarts were found during a routine traffic stop on Wednesday, said officers with the Charleston Police Department.

Officers said they stopped Lawrence Schmidt, 31, of Savannah, GA, along Savannah Highway at about 10:22 p.m. because of defective rear tag lights and an obscured back window.

According to the incident report, Schmidt appeared nervous when asked routine questions, was unable to keep eye contact, had shaky hands and was breathing rapidly. One of the officers then asked Schmidt to step out of the vehicle to show him the defective lights.

One of the officers was given permission to search the interior of the vehicle and noticed the stereo console in the dashboard had been messed with, the report states.

When they removed the console, officers said they found two clear plastic bags with three separate aluminum foil wrappings. One of the wrappings had a strip of multi-colored paper containing ten tabs. The other wrappings had 15 circular colored tablets stamped with the inscription, 'Sweet Tarts.'

The report states that the officers found a total of 25 hits of acid, or lysergic acid diethylamide, also know as LSD.

Officers said the drugs have an approximate street value of $625.

Schmidt was charged with trafficking LSD.

He is being held on a $30,000 bond.
