As a result of the investigation officers recovered approximately two pounds of methamphetamine, two ounces of cocaine, marijuana, psilocybin (mushrooms), $1,364 US currency, digital scales, and packaging material consistent with the sales and manufacturing of controlled substances.

The “customers” arrived on foot and by vehicle and were comprised of people from various neighborhoods in and around Bucks County.
