FC10282014A1An investigation of a tip of a possible illegal drug operation last week resulted in the arrest of three subjects, and the seizure of an indoor marijuana growing operation, along with the seizure of what was believed to be hallucinogenic mushrooms.

According to Sheriff Chucky Cravens, officers from his department went to 1113 West Hills Road in Jamestown to check out information of a possible illegal drug operation.

Sheriff Cravens said that officers made contact with a male subject living at the residence, at which they observed a marijuana stalk sitting on the front porch, and noticed a strong odor of what smelled like marijuana coming from inside the house.  The officers walked around the house, and observed through a window what appeared to be marijuana in one of the bedrooms.

This photo shows the containers filled with some 90 quart jars of what was believed to be hallucinogenic mushrooms which were also seized in the drug raid.
