Two men receive drug treatment after being arrested with mushrooms

By Aaron Gibson – Sun Group Newspapers Contributor
Two men accused of trafficking hallucinogenic mushrooms in Brown County were recently spared prison sentences and ordered to undergo drug treatment.
Geoffrey Davies of Maysville, Kentucky pleaded guilty Tuesday, April 5 in Brown County Common Pleas Court to an amended charge of third-degree felony aggravated possession of drugs and was sentenced to two years of intensive probation.
Davies was ordered to undergo treatment with the STAR Program, which could include Transitional Living, and any other treatment or counseling the Adult Probation Department insists he complete. Davies will also have a suspended driver’s license for 12 months.
According to First Assistant Prosecutor Zac Corbin, on Nov. 27, 2015, Davies and two other men were encountered by authorities sleeping in a vehicle parked along Nixon Road near Mt. Orab.
A probable cause search of the vehicle, initiated by the smell of marijuana and the butt of a suspected marijuana cigar in an ashtray, yielded 199 grams of hallucinogenic mushrooms, empty bags, digital scales, and other items consistent with drug trafficking.
The drugs and drug paraphernalia were found in a backpack laying in the driver’s compartment, Corbin said.
Davies allegedly admitted the backpack belonged to him, according to an incident report.
In a second case of alleged mushroom trafficking in Brown County, Corey Thoroman of Winchester pleaded guilty March 28 to one count of fourth-degree felony aggravated trafficking in drugs, receiving a one year probation sentence.
Thoroman was also ordered to forfeit $470 seized in the investigation to the Brown County Drug and Major Crimes Task Force and undergo any treatment or counseling the Adult Probation Department insists upon. Thoroman will also have a driver’s license suspension for 12 months.
According to Corbin, Thoroman was found in possession of 25.78 grams of hallucinogenic mushrooms and $940 in cash after being spotted by witnesses allegedly selling the drug in the Mt. Orab Kroger parking lot on Oct. 22, 2015.
Thoroman allegedly admitted to police he was in the parking lot to sell a “quarter bag” of mushrooms for $60, Corbin said.
Hallucinogenic mushrooms contain psilocin and psilocybin, Schedule I controlled substances under the Ohio Revised Code.
Under Ohio state law, thirty grams or more of hallucinogenic mushrooms is considered the bulk amount.
