Town of Geneva police find 'large' amount of mushrooms

September 29, 2010 | 08:40 AM
Geneva — Police are in the midst of investigating what may be a large psilocybin mushroom manufacturing operation.

"We have officers out interviewing people today," town police officer Ken Mulhollon said Tuesday morning. "We're really right in the middle of everything."

What's public so far is town of Geneva police executed a drug-related search warrant Sunday, Sept. 26, around 11 a.m. at W2888 Krueger Road, Unit G.

Mulhollon said it's a commercial business property being rented privately.

According to a police statement, two individuals were at the business when the search warrant was executed. Charges are pending in the ongoing investigation. Mulhollon said police arrested one individual during the search, but that person was released from custody later that day.

"We don't have anybody in custody right now, but we do have some suspects and we do know who these people are," Mulhollon said.

An undetermined number of suspected psilocybin mushrooms were confiscated by police. Mulhollon said at this point in the investigation, he couldn't reveal how many mushrooms. "But it's a large amount," he said.

Mulhollon said it was also too early to reveal what led up to the issuing of the search warrant. But according to the statement, the warrant was the result of an ongoing town police investigation.
