What started as an underage drinking operation, turned into an arrest for selling hallucinogenic mushrooms. Placer County Sheriff Public Information Officer Dena Erwin says 19 year-old Noah Phippen of Penryn was arrested in Roseville Friday night after he was approached by a 20 year-old decoy from the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.
The deal was made and then came the arrest.
Throughout the transaction, Placer County Sheriff’s deputies were sitting nearby in unmarked cars. Phippen is being held in the Placer County Jail on 200-thousand dollars bail.
