View attachment 34607 MIAMI TOWNSHIP, Ohio —Sheriff's deputies arrested a Clermont County man accused of growing psychedelic mushrooms.
Authorities have been investigating the distribution of significant amounts of the hallucinogenic drug throughout southwest Ohio, and deputies searched a home Friday in the 1300 block of Nicholas Drive in Miami Township.
Agents said they found a laboratory where the mushrooms, which contain the psychoactive chemical psilocybin, were grown and processed.
Deputies seized 503 pounds of materials containing psilocybin, a Schedule 1 controlled substance, valued at $805,000.
Aaron Gasper, 26, was charged with illegal manufacture of drugs and remains at the Clermont County Jail.
Additional charges and arrests are expected in the case, which deputies said was the largest such seizure in county history
