A man reportedly told Huron County sheriff's deputies that so-called psychedelic mushrooms are difficult to find in Michigan.

Cory J. Price, 27, and Nicole K. Keefer, 36, both of Canton, Mich., were charged with possession of psilocybin in connection with a traffic stop about 12:30 p.m. Monday. Detective Sgt. Josh Querin made the stop on U.S. 20 in Norwalk Township with his police dog, Bea.

Located inside the car was a baggie containing suspected psilocybin mushrooms and marijuana. Price said he was transporting the mushrooms to Michigan because they are "hard to find in Michigan," deputies said.

Detective Kayla Zander and Sgt. Chuck Summers assisted with the traffic stop.

Price and Keefer were arrested without incident and taken to the Huron County Jail.
