Sylva – Authorities in Jackson County arrested a 34-year-old Glenville man after finding a lab for making psychedelic drugs in his home, a host of designer drugs, guns and cash.
Matthew Jordan Reynolds is in jail in lieu of $200,000 bail.
Capt. Steve Lillard of the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office said deputies searched his home on Thursday, where they found a lab for making the psychedelic DMT.
They also found 1,200 capsules and 100 grams of a drug called 2C-B, which was used as a drug in psychiatric therapy. It produces a short “trip” of about 3 hours and is considered milder than LSD.
Investigators sized undetermined quantities of the designer drugs DOC and DOI, sometimes called molly paper on the street. Narcotics investigators in neighboring Haywood County this summer seized tabs of the drug in a car and later at a house. They suspected it in two violent arrests, including one where a man was swinging an axe handle at oncoming cars in the middle of a traffic circle.
In Jackson County, investigators also found two grams of psychedelic DMT, three pounds of psychedelic mushrooms, 59 hits of Ecstasy, 750 hits of acid, a half pound “high grade” marijuana and what they believe is a small amount of Hashish, and $7,000 in cash, Lillard said in a statement this afternoon.
The N.C. State Bureau of Investigation was called in to help with the lab and the chemicals at the Old Post Office Road home.
Reynolds is charged with four counts of felony possession of schedule I controlled substance, three counts of possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver Schedule I controlled substance, two counts of manufacture schedule I controlled substance, trafficking in LSD, maintaining a dwelling to keep controlled substances, felony possession of marijuana, possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver marijuana and possession of firearm by a felon.
