Lansing police arrest resident, seize marijuana, hallucinogens
March 25, 2005

LANSING - A three-month investigation by Lansing police led to the raid of an apartment and the seizure of "high-grade" marijuana and hallucinogenic mushrooms Wednesday.

Following the raid, police arrested Grant Sonnenberg, 26, of 18015 Wentworth Ave.

Charges are pending with the Cook County state's attorney, and they could range from possession to possession with intent to distribute.

"It was a nice pinch," Police Chief Dan McDevitt said. "I'm proud of these guys."

According to McDevitt, police had received a tip that someone living in the area was dealing marijuana. They began an investigation that led to Sonnenberg's apartment, he said.

After executing a search warrant, tactical officers and detectives found nearly 200 grams of high-grade "hydro-grow" marijuana, valued at about $2,000.

The marijuana, grown in hydroponic conditions, is know for its potency.

Police also seized nearly 400 grams of hallucinogenic Psilocybin mushrooms, valued at about $2,500.

"Although by some big city standards, these amounts of drugs might not seem important, to us in Lansing, drug enforcement is a relative concept," McDevitt said in a released statement. "We don't want anyone dealing any amount of drugs in our village, and will take whatever steps necessary to see that they are investigated, identified, arrested, and prosecuted."

i wonder if the mushrooms are fresh or dry. That seems like a very conservative estimate for 400g dry.

I assume they were dry, as wet mushrooms couldn't possibly be worth that much, unless someone was being very greedy, or they were some extraordinarily potent strain.
