Last week, York County drug agents searched a man’s apartment and found Psychedelic mushrooms and anabolic steroids. Initially the agents stopped the man in his vehicle because the license plate of his car had a tinted cover. When the deputies approached the car, they noticed an open container of Ciroc vodka and the man had cocaine and almost $500 on him.
Due the alleged suspicion aroused, officers obtained a search warrant to search the man’s home where they found 2.5 grams of cocaine, .8 grams of MDMA (or ecstasy) , 8.8 grams of psilocybin mushrooms (or “magic mushrooms”), Xanax, Marijuana, and about 30 dose units of Anabolic Steroids.
The man is being held in the York County Detention Center on a $26,882.50 bond. He is being charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of MDMA with intent to distribute, possession of Xanax with intent to distribute, possession of Psilocybin mushrooms with intent to distribute, possession of anabolic steroids with the intent to distribute, possession of marijuana and violation of the ABC law.
