BOONSBORO — Two Boonsboro men were charged with possession with intent to distribute hallucinogenic mushrooms and marijuana after a Clevelandtown Road home was raided Tuesday by the Washington County Narcotics Task Force, according to Washington County District Court records.

Wesley Andrew Kosco, 18, of 6108 Clevelandtown Road, and Christopher Robert Jordan, 21, of 9364 Childacrest Drive, were charged with maintaining a common nuisance for the distribution and administration of controlled dangerous substances, possession of marijuana, possession of controlled dangerous substances and possession of drug paraphernalia, court records said.

Kosco was being held in the Washington County Detention Center Wednesday on $100,000 bond, an officer at the center said. Kosco is scheduled for a preliminary hearing May 7, court records said.

Jordan was jailed on $50,000, but later posted bond, court records said. He is also scheduled for a May 7 preliminary hearing, court records said.

Task force agents went to Kosco’s home with a search warrant Tuesday, and Kosco was caught by an agent as he tried to flee the house, the statement of probable cause said. Agents found suspected marijuana and dried psilocybin mushrooms in several rooms of the house, along with about 20 smoking devices, as well as scales, grinders and other paraphernalia, the document said.

The amount of marijuana and mushrooms found were “of a sufficient quantity to indicate the intentions for distribution purposes,” the charging document said.

Though he had a different address, the charging documents said there was evidence that Jordan was living in the house.

The charging document said a woman and a teenage girl were also at the house at the time of the search, but district court records did not indicate the woman had been charged. Juvenile court records are confidential.

The charging document said several controlled purchases of drugs were made during the investigation leading up to Tuesday’s raid.
