Air conditioners on a cold day?
The bust came as two states and several cities in the U.S. have decriminalized psychedelic mushrooms and their active ingredient, psilocybin…
Authorities said they received a tip that the resident of the Burlington home was operating a psilocybin mushroom growing operation. Federal, state and local law enforcement officials went to the property Thursday morning and said they saw ventilation equipment on the home that was consistent with items used in “clandestine laboratories.” “They were running air conditioners, and it was a cold day, which didn’t seem right,” Lee Hornfischer recalled. “They had air conditioners in the top windows, and also in the front of the house. There were more cars during the day. It almost seemed like a place of employment, more than a place to sleep at night.” The man posted $250,000 bail and was ordered to appear in state court in New Britain on Nov. 16. Contact information for him could not be found in public records, and court records did not list a lawyer for him. Phone numbers listed in public records for several potential relatives of the man were no longer in service.
