(ASHLAND, Ore.) - Oregon State Police are seeking information to help locate a California man who they say ran from the scene of a traffic stop in the Ashland area one week ago.

They say they found approximately 11.4 pounds of Psilocybin "magic mushrooms" during the stop.

Lieutenant Brian Powers with Oregon State Police says this was the second notable seizure involving Psilocybin mushrooms on Interstate 5 in a week.

Police say the suspect was stopped by an OSP trooper from the Central Point Area Command office while driving a 1998 Toyota 4-Runner with California license plates southbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 11 June 21st at 6:04 PM.

During contact with the operator, identified as 37-year old Jeffrey Aaron Marsh of Carmel, California, is alleged to have fled in his vehicle for a short distance before stopping and fleeing on foot.

After the OSP trooper obtained a search warrant on the vehicle, the Psilocybin mushrooms were located. Marsh says the typical price for an ounce of dried mushrooms can range from as little as $70 to $400 depending on the quality of the product, as well as their availability in the area.

Jeffrey Marsh is described as white male, 5'10", approximately 150 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Marsh is asked to contact Oregon State Police Southern Command Center dispatch at (541) 776-6111.

I'm reading this old article that's trying to help get this guy arrested while also seeing these headlines above: "CBD- The Other Healing Cannabinoid Part 1", "CBD and Cancer: Part II". Like all good news sources this one is entirely unbiased and will spread anything even if the perspectives conflict with each-other so long as it helps bring them views and money!!! GOOOOOOOOOODDDD JOB!
