2 arrested after police find mushroom grow house


NASHVILLE (AP) - Nashville police raided a house where they found several hundred bags and jars of illegal hallucinogenic mushrooms and arrested two men for felony drug possession.

Police said in a news release Friday that an investigation by their narcotics unit led them to a home in southern Davidson County. Investigators raided the home of 41-year-old Christopher Coxey and found 394 bags of mushroom spores, 899 jars of mushroom spores, 12 jars of processed mushrooms, syringes with mushroom spores and six guns.

Police said Coxey was using a portable cement mixer inside the house to mix the chemicals needed to grow the mushrooms. Also arrested was 36-year-old Jeremy Davis, who was renting another home by Coxey where police found additional mushrooms and equipment.
