Couple Arrested for Growing and Dealing in Psychedelic Mushrooms

(CHARLESTOWN) – On Tuesday, Troopers from the Sellersburg All Crimes Policing (ACP) squad arrested a Charlestown couple for growing and dealing psilocybin (psychedelic mushrooms) and possession of marijuana.

Psilocybin is a Schedule I drug. Schedule I drugs are defined as drugs having no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. 

Acting on a tip, Trooper Brett Walters and Sergeant Katrina Smith of the Sellersburg ACP squad arrived at 274 Woodridge Drive in Charlestown to investigate possible drug activity. Information gathered and observed while at the property prompted officers to seek a search warrant, which was granted by a Clark County judge and immediately served.
