New Drug Discovered During Bust
NEVADA COUNTY — Investigators in Nevada County are checking out an apparent new type of illegal drug that turned up during a bust there this week.
On Tuesday, officers from the Nevada County Sheriff’s Narcotics Task Force, served a search warrant at the residence of Zachary Michael Fisher, 22 years old, on Sutton Way, in the Nevada Woods Apartment complex in Grass Valley.
While conducting the search, officers said they discovered marijuana, psilocybin mushrooms, suspected LSD, and a white powdery substance, suspected of being a new hallucinogenic drug called 2C-I (2,5-dimethoxy-4-iodophenethylamine). Officers also said they located evidence of an indoor marijuana grow, which led them to a residence on St. Ledger Forest, in Grass Valley, where the existence of an indoor grow was confirmed.
The search warrant was obtained when the suspect allegedly tried to mail about 2 ounces of marijuana via UPS. Zachary was arrested and charged with cultivation of marijuana, distribution of marijuana, and possession of controlled substances and booked into the Wayne Brown Correctional Facility.
Substances will be analyzed by the Dept of Justice Crime Lab to confirm the compounds.
