During their search, officers found and seized:

  • 6,060 psilocybin capsules
  • 1,954 grams of dried psilocybin mushrooms
  • 1,215 psilocybin chocolate bars
  • 235 grams psilocybin gummies
  • 13 grams psilocybin hot chocolate

Officers charged a 21-year-old employee who was on scene at the time, with possession of a substance for the purposes of trafficking.

This is the third bust at the dispensary. Police also executed warrants in July and August which resulted in the seizure of more than $46,000 worth of mushroom-infused products.

The police-issued news release included a warning from Health Canada that taking magic mushrooms can cause people to “see, hear or feel things that are not there, or to experience anxiety, fear, nausea and muscle twitches accompanied by increased heart rate and blood pressure.”

Police say the investigation remains ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call the Windsor Police DIGS Unit at 519-255-6700, ext. 4361. They can also contact Windsor & Essex County Crime Stoppers anonymously at 519-258-8477 (TIPS) or online at www.catchcrooks.com
