Downtown Edwardsville shop raided; police say it sold cannabis oil – Belleville News

A drug task force raided a downtown Edwardsville shop suspected of selling cannabis oils, according to a police affidavit.

Agents with the Metropolitan Enforcement Group of Southwestern Illinois — a regional drug task force — raided the El Tigre shop after receiving an anonymous tip about cannabis oil being sold there, the affidavit states.

The affidavit was filed by MEGSI Special Agent Michael Conrad as part of an application for a warrant to search the shop. The search resulted in the seizure of dozens of products.

It wasn’t immediately clear Thursday whether any charges had been filed in connection with the raid. Neither the Madison County State’s Attorney’s Office nor MEGSI officials immediately returned calls for comment. A person who answered a call to the shop Thursday morning declined comment.

Conrad’s affidavit said MEGSI agents conducted two undercover buys at El Tigre — 108 East Vandalia St. — in late March and late April.
