Two men arrested at Bonaroo with $30,000 worth of drugs
Bonnaroo became the subject of national attention on Friday, June 9, when a man claiming to be carrying out “God’s work” was apprehended by authorities for selling fake drugs to people. Two days later, a major arrest related to suspects with intent to sell legitimate illicit substances has taken place after campers tipped off police about two men who seemed intent on making a weekend profit.
Authorities obtained a search warrant and proceeded to conduct a thorough search of the suspects’ car, uncovering over a pound of magic mushrooms packed into 138 different bags as well as several bags of marijuana. These bulk items, combined with 11 molly caps and 11 ecstasy pills, totaled to around $30,000 street value. An assortment of drug paraphernalia was also found among the two men’s effects.
Both suspects have been charged with two counts of manufacturing, possession, delivery, and selling for all the substances found in their domain. Overall, the weekend has seen a relatively low arrest rate of just over a dozen total people apprehended.
