Toledo police said the psychedelic mushrooms confiscated by officers on Sunday weigh about 137 pounds.
The drugs are worth an estimated $3.1 million, Chief Derrick Diggs said during a news conference this afternoon.
Police believe this is the largest mushroom seizure in the state.
Police have charged three people: Matthew Thierry, 41, of Whitehouse; Mikael Skiles, 31, of Toledo, and Ian Golbinec, 31, of Toledo. The men are charged with trafficking in drugs, possession of drugs, and illegal manufacturing of drugs. Mr. Thierry and Mr. Golbinec are both also charged with tampering with evidence.
They were ordered to be held in the jail in lieu of $50,000 each, but Mr. Thierry's wife posted the bond in cash and Mr. Skiles posted a surety bond. Mr. Golbinec was still in the jail this afternoon.
