The New York Police Department said a raid on a suspected drug lab found only a man mixing table salt with baking soda.
Police said officers raided a Manhattan co-op Monday on drug manufacturing allegations and discovered a man creating several pounds of a white substance, the New York Post reported Tuesday.
Investigators initially suspected the substance to be illegal bath salts, a designer drug, but they soon discovered the 44-year-old man was only mixing table salt with baking soda.
Police said the man may have been suffering from a mental illness and was taken to Roosevelt Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation. They said he may have believed he was creating bath salts.
