Kansas police extradited a Greenwood man who prosecutors say intended to distribute 238 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, and had more than four pounds of marijuana edibles.
Adam C. Davis, 30, was charged in April with dealing a schedule I, II or III controlled substance and dealing marijuana as a controlled substance, both felonies, as well as possession of a schedule II, III or IV controlled substance, a misdemeanor. If convicted, he could face up to 33 1/2 years in prison.
A warrant was issued for Davis’s arrest in April, and he was brought back to Johnson County and booked into the Johnson County jail on Tuesday.
Drug Enforcement Administration officials in February notified Greenwood police that Kansas Highway Patrol had pulled over Davis, and had found a vacuum-sealed package containing four Zip-Loc bags of psilocybin mushrooms in the vehicle — equal to 147 grams — according to a probable cause affidavit filed in April in Johnson County Circuit Court.
Davis told Kansas police he was unemployed and worked odd-end jobs. He also told police he lived in Greenwood — which Greenwood police were later able to confirm, according to court documents.
Police say Davis had rented six vehicles between August 2020 and March 2021, traveling from Indianapolis to Denver one way, with the exception of one time when he rented a car in Missouri, court documents said.
DEA officials asked Greenwood police to visit Davis’s home to determine if he lived there. Multiple neighbors confirmed he lived in the home, according to court documents.
Greenwood police suspected Davis was a part of the drug trade, and when they were told how many grams of mushrooms he was found with, they suspected he was dealing drugs. One officer said it was the largest amount of mushrooms he had ever heard of being discovered during a traffic stop, court documents said.
Police later executed a search warrant at Davis’ Greenwood home and seized numerous items, including a cell phone, computer, possible drug ledger, marijuana grinder and electric food saver machine. They also seized digital scales, marijuana glass pipes, 124 THC vape cartridges, 12 suspected ecstasy pills, about 238 grams of mushrooms, 259 grams of marijuana wax, four pounds of marijuana edibles and a pound of leafy marijuana. Police also found a motorcycle that was reported stolen in 2017, according to court documents.
The amount of narcotics found in the home indicated it was not for personal use, police said. Court officials soon after issued a warrant for Davis’s arrest, which was carried out this month.
Davis is held at the Johnson County jail on $32,450 bond. An initial hearing is set for Nov. 1.
