DOMESTIC DISPUTE LEADS TO MASSIVE "SHROOMS" ARRESTS

Berkeley, California (Monday, September 25, 2017) - Domestic Dispute Leads to Massive Shrooms Arrests

 On September 23, 2017 at approximately 10:00pm, Berkeley Police Dispatch received a call regarding a domestic disturbance between boyfriend and girlfriend on the 1700 block of Alcatraz Avenue.  Officers responded and made contact with the occupants who initially refused to open the door.  After a short time, the two exited the house and were detained.  Officers then entered the house to look for additional victims, suspects or occupants. They discovered a large scale psychedelic mushroom processing operation.  In plain view were psilocybin mushrooms in various stages of cultivation as well as storage and distribution materials.   Officers secured the scene and obtained a search warrant for the premises. Both parties (a 35 year old adult male and a 37 year old adult female, of Berkeley) were arrested and booked into the Alameda County Jail on narcotics related charges. 

Seized from the residence were 677 pounds of mushrooms (estimated street value of over $1 million dollars), over $3000 in cash and additional evidence which indicated a large scale and scope of the sales operations. 

The Berkeley Police Department takes great pride in ridding the community of dangerous narcotics.
