Discovery of “magic mushrooms” and 42 grams of marijuana led to the arrest of two students on Tuesday, according to a Hamden police report.

Hamden police charged Christopher Folsom and Adrian Miles, both 19, with possession of an hallucinogenic, marijuana and drug paraphernalia. The students were also charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell.

Folsom and Miles were allegedly in possession of the marijuana and mushrooms in their residence hall, according to the Wednesday release.

“The students have been suspended from the university pending the outcome of their disciplinary hearings,” said Lynn Bushnell, vice president for public affairs, in the university’s only comment.

Both students were released after posting $10,000 bonds. They are due in court in Meriden on March 15.
