Illegal mushroom operation stopped
A Napa couple was arrested after agents found they were growing psychedelic mushrooms in their home.
The Napa Special Investigations Bureau obtained a search warrant for a residence on the 3200 block of Cuttings Wharf Road, after receiving information that the residents were growing and selling psilocybin mushrooms, agents said.
Agents served the search warrant on Thursday at 4:50 p.m.
They found Japheth Large, 37, and Jenny Dee Glenn, 39, at the residence. They had about a half pound of mushrooms for sale, worth about $500, agents said.
Agents also recovered more than 60 plastic tubs where mushrooms were growing and $1,000 in cash of suspected drug proceeds, agents said.
Large and Glenn were arrested and booked at the Napa County Department of Corrections.

COMMENT: worth noting CA is one of the few US states where even the spores of psilocybin mushrroms are illegal.
