CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) – Agents seized some 800 bags full of hallucinogenic mushrooms from a suburban Denver home in what officers are calling the largest mushroom operation they’ve ever seen.

Two men face drug distribution charges after Tuesday’s raid at a rented home in Centennial. Forty-one-year-old Keith Davis and Augustin Rodrigez were charged.

Capt. Larry Etheridge with the Arapahoe County sheriff’s department said the street value for the mushrooms is $225,000. Etheridge said authorities believe the men were selling the mushrooms online.

Davis faces an additional child porn count and a child abuse count after marijuana was found out in the open of the home where a toddler also lived.
