UPDATE: Apartment search related to downtown Rochester threat, leads to discovery of hallucinogenic mushroom farm

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: Hours after a Rochester man threatens people with a shotgun in downtown Rochester, police make an important discovery.

According to Rochester police, 35-year-old Jordan Blevins is expected in court Tuesday, a day after he had pointed a shotgun at several people near Fusion Lounge in downtown Rochester around 2 a.m. Monday. 

Later that morning, police arrested him at his home, but the shotgun, as well as a handgun, believed to be on him, were nowhere to be found. Blevins faces 2nd Degree Assault and Terroristic Threats charges. 

Monday afternoon, the investigation revealed a connection to an apartment at 317 South Broadway. When officers went to the apartment, the resident was not cooperative. Officers then obtained a warrant to search the apartment.

Inside, officers found the guns, believed to be used in the incident, and a hallucinogenic Mushroom growing operation. Armed with a separate warrant, officers went in with full protective suits to investigate, since the mushrooms pose an airborne danger.

The resident was a friend of Blevins, and could be arrested on drug charges soon. 

Blevins himself was found with cocaine and a number of unknown pills as well.
