Phippen, 19, allegedly told the decoy he was too young to buy alcohol but could sell him some "California gold cap mushrooms", which are an hallucenogen.

The decoy, who was wired and being monitored by sheriff's deputies parked in unmarked vehicles, bought the mushrooms and deputies confronted Phippen. Erwin said Phippen denied selling drugs. Deputies searched his vehicle and reported finding of a large amount of psilocybin mushrooms, cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana, scales and more than $1,500 in cash.
