Apparently the mushrooms that a 21-year old Manchester man were growing in his apartment were a little too wild.
Colton Perznaowski, 21, of 94 East Middle Tpke., was arrested Wednesday after officers from the East Central Narcotics Task force obtained a search warrant to search his residence and found a psychedelic mushroom growing operation set up in Perznaowski’s bedroom.
According to police, spores, lights and seven different actively growing varieties of hallucinogenic mushroom cakes were seized at Perznaowski’s residence, along with a small amount of marijuana and other drug paraphernalia.
Perznaowski was charged with possession of psilocybin mushrooms, possession of marijuana, operating a drug factory, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of drug paraphernalia within 1,500 feet of a school, possession of drugs within 1,500 feet of school, possession of drugs with intent to sell within 1,500 of a school. He was held on a $75,000 bond.
The East Central Narcotics Task Force, in cooperation with other municipal, and federal law enforcement agencies, is interested in stopping illegal narcotics sales and use in the Manchester, South Windsor, Vernon, and Glastonbury communities. Anyone with information pertaining to any illicit drug activity is asked to contact the East Central Narcotics Task Force.
