Authorities said in an arrest report that a College Station police officer smelled marijuana after contacting Parker Geisweidt in the Post Oak Mall parking lot early Monday.

The officer said in the report that Geisweidt admitted to smoking marijuana. A search of his vehicle yielded bags of Psilocybin mushrooms, the report states, as well as grinders with mushroom residue in them and capsules filled with ground mushrooms.

Geisweidt was charged with manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance, unlawful carry of a weapon and possession of marijuana.

His bail was set at $27,000.

The manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance charge is a first-degree felony, which is punishable by up to 99 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Canning class set for next week

The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension service is offering a workshop next week that covers the basics of canning food.

The class will be Tuesday from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Brazos County Extension Office, 4153 County Park Court in Bryan. The $35 cost will cover supplies and a canning guide.

Organizers of the workshop said the event will cover the differences between water bath canning and pressure canning.

“Water bath canning is one way to preserve high-acid foods such as jams and jellies,” said Flora Williams, an AgriLife Extension family and community health agent. “Low-acid foods are best if processed in a pressure canner and not a water bath. Knowing what method to use to properly and safely can specific foods is important.”

The class is limited to 20 people. To register, call 823-0129 or email fewilliams@ag.tamu.edu.
