Police raided the West Burnside psychedelic mushroom shop Shroom House early morning, seizing evidence and arresting multiple people, and putting an end to one of the city’s biggest holiday-season attractions.
Shroom House has been operating since Oct. 24, violating federal and state laws governing the use of psychedelic mushrooms in Oregon. That hasn’t deterred Portlanders, who lined up for over six hours on many days this month to purchase psychoactive fungi. A small queue formed this morning in the pouring rain before being told by a reporter that the store had been raided.
Portland Police Bureau spokesman Sgt. Kevin Allen confirmed the raid to WW early this morning.
The shop’s likely owner, 32-year-old Steven Tony Tachie Jr., was booked in jail at 4:19 am this morning on charges of money laundering and manufacturing or delivering a Schedule I controlled substance near a school. Police also arrested Jeremiahs Francis Geronimo, 32, and booked him on similar charges.
Victor B. Fabela, 25, and Ivan Mametyev, 38, were issued criminal citations for delivery of psilocybin, Portland police said. More than $13,000 in cash and “a large amount of suspected psilocybin products,” were seized during the 1 am raid by officers with the bureau’s Narcotics and Organized Crime Unit.
Two senior prosecutors with the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office assisted with the raid, an office spokeswoman said.
