Botanical Bust Sends Four to Jail

By  | 

A pile of plants lands four College Station residents in jail. A search warrant executed Friday night on a home in the 1100 block of Taurus Circle turned up marijuana and mushrooms with a street value in the thousands.

Those arrested include Isaac Fortner, 21; Christopher Denton, 21; Jessica King, 20; and Matthew White, 18. All four were at the residence when the College Station Police Department's Special Investigations Unit served the warrant around 6:30 p.m. Authorities seized about five ounces of pot and 11 ounces of illegal mushrooms. The suspects now face a variety of drug charges.
