The police learned about the 17-year-old unlawful deals and he was put under close watch. But when he was about to claim a package from the Netherlands on August 20, authorities got involved right away.

The parcel was inspected and an illegal substance was found, specifically 5,400 ml of substance used to grow a hallucinogenic called “magic” mushrooms.

The teen and his mother were arrested. Authorities believe that there are probably more people connected to trading of hallucinogenic mushrooms.
