Hallucinogenic gummy bears: Not a new flavor, a drug creation that got 3 men arrested, say Ohio cops
(CBS/AP) MENTOR, Ohio - Police near Cleveland arrested three New York men during a traffic stop after searching their vehicle and allegedly finding drug-laced gummy bears, CBS affiliate WNCX reports.
Mentor Police Sgt. Dustin Richards told WNCX that driver Eric Kenny and passengers Arkady Koroshihk and Michal Nemcok were arrested under suspicion of using drugs to make hallucinogenic candies.
Police reportedly spotted a car speeding early Tuesday morning, and pulled the vehicle over suspecting that Kenny was under the influence of alcohol. Upon searching the car, officers said they discovered drugs, drug paraphernalia and items used in the manufacturing of drugs.
Police said they also found a gummy bear mold along with ecstasy, bath salts, LSD, and prescription anxiety drugs in the car, according to The Associated Press.
The three appeared in Mentor Municipal Court on Wednesday on several drug and traffic charges.
Sgt. Richards said that as of their court hearing, none of the men posted bond and still remain housed in Lake County Jail.
