A town in Sullivan, Missouri, saw bizarre behavior last weekend when four individuals were said to have wandered the streets while stripping off their clothes, barking, yelling, trespassing and showering in soda water. The incident was drug-induced, according to police.

The suspects were seen terrorizing the town Saturday, police said. The drugs have not yet been tested, but police believe the suspects had overdosed on the synthetic drug known as flakka, mixed with methamphetamine. Two people were arrested and others were taken to the hospital.

"We had multiple incidents this past weekend of people on some kind of substance acting out of their minds," Sullivan Police Lt. Patrick Johnson told NBC-affiliate KSDK Wednesday. "Barking like dogs, running up and down the street or other farm animals, entering people’s homes, breaking into a business, yelling outside of local businesses we saw a lot of activity this weekend."

The suspects broke into local businesses and stole money from cash registers. They robbed one store of over $1,000, said Alec Ockrassa, the General Manager of Sullivan Bowl.

"My dad came in Saturday morning ready to open the place [up] and noticed that the doors by the machine area were opened up and came in and noticed one of our cash registers was knocked over on the floor," Ockrassa claimed.

"Shocked, really caught off guard," he said of the incident. "Some are scared, some are just surprised something like this is happening here. For the most part it’s a really quiet town."

Last year, there was an uptick in people using flakka in Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio and Florida, and police were concerned it would also hit Missouri and Kansas City, the Kansas City Star reported. The drug caused overdose deaths and a surge in emergency room visits.

Flakka, also known as alpha-PVP, has a similar chemical makeup to bath salts, a synthetic drug that can cause severe paranoia, delusions and psychosis, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Flakka is known to confuse users and dangerously raise body temperature.
