70 pounds of mushroom candy bars seized in Rapides Parish

LAFAYETTE, La. (KPEL News) — A traffic stop on I-49 in Rapides Parish was anything but routine when sheriff’s deputies said the smell of marijuana turned into a powerful discovery.

We’ve found vast amounts of marijuana over the years, we’ve found fake urine to test in the past, and now this is one of those that ranks high.

That was the spokesman for the Rapides Sheriff’s Office, Tommy Carnline who told our news partners at Louisiana Radio Network Their dog, Beny, helped them find 487 candy bars containing psychoactive mushrooms. That’s 70 pounds!

But wait, there’s more.
