GYPSUM, Colo. – Two men were arrested and 239 marijuana plants were found when investigators, acting on a tip, searched a home at 90 Beacon Court in Gypsum Tuesday morning, according to the Eagle County’s Sheriff’s Office.

Psilocybin mushrooms and several pounds of hashish were also found; altogether, the drugs seized have an estimated street value of $30,000, authorities said.

Alvaro Medina, 22, and Adam Coleman, 25, both residents of the home, are now in custody at the Eagle County Detention Center. Medina has a bond set for $50,000 and Coleman has a bond set for $7,500. Jacob Macias, 23, also of 90 Beacon Court, was summonsed and released on misdemeanor charges.

The home has been condemned by the town of Gypsum because it’s a fire hazard and because of multiple other building code violations.
