Oregonians arrested with psychedelic mushrooms at Sasquatch! festival

GEORGE, Wash. (AP) - More than 13 pounds of chocolate laced with psychedelic mushrooms were seized in a camp site raid near the Gorge Amphitheatre that led to five arrests during the Sasquatch! Music Festival.

The Grant County Sheriff's Office says also seized on Sunday were about 1.2 pounds of marijuana, about 3.7 pounds of psychedelic mushrooms, more than 25 grams of hash oil and four grams of methamphetamine.

The sheriff's office says an undercover detective bought drugs from the suspects. In the raid at the Gorge campground, about $9,000 and a Jeep Cherokee were also seized. Authorities estimated the street value of the drugs seized at $13,000.

Three Oregon men, one Alaska man and one Oregon woman, ranging in age from 20 to 27 years, were arrested and booked into Grant County Jail in Ephrata on a variety of drug charges.

The three-day music festival featured more than 50 acts.
