A western Colorado newspaper is trying to figure out where a batch of illegal mushrooms found in its building came from. And someone in Indiana is probably wondering why their mushrooms never came in the mail.
Workers at Glenwood Springs Post Independent discovered an undelivered package and tried to figure out who it belonged to.
According to a recent Post Independent article, workers opened the package after they couldn’t track down the sender or the intended recipient by the names on the package. An Indiana address was listed as a recipient and the newspaper’s address was listed for the return address.
An undetermined amount of psilocybin mushrooms were found inside the package. Police were called and the package was turned over to a drug enforcement team for further investigation.
The package sat unclaimed for two months before staffers found it. It had a postal date of mid-July and was returned to the newspaper’s building in August.
