Two Gillette residents were arrested Saturday morning after police allegedly seized a smorgasbord of illegal drugs at a residence on Quacker Avenue, a Gillette police official said Monday.
Officers responded to the residence to assist emergency medical services (EMS) after a 36-year-old female called to report that her husband, a 42-year-old male, was having a seizure around 8:20 a.m., according to Gillette Police Detective Sgt. Dean Welch.
The male was no longer seizing when officers and EMS arrived on the scene. Not long after, however, the 36-year-old female began having a seizure and was transported to the emergency room.
Both the male and the female showed signs of recent amphetamine use, Welch said, adding that the 42-year-old male allegedly admitted that he and his wife had used cocaine approximately 3 hours beforehand and that there were more drugs in the house.
The male granted consent for officers to search the residence, but they had to obtain a warrant after the female revoked that consent, per Welch.
Inside the Quacker Avenue residence, Welch continued, officers located approximately 23.7 grams of suspected cocaine, 1.4 ounces of suspected psilocybin mushrooms, 28.2 grams of suspected methamphetamine, 2.3 grams of suspected LSD tabs, 3.1 grams of marijuana, and 19 grams of THC gummies.
The cocaine, LSD, and meth all allegedly tested presumptive positive at the scene, per Welch, who added that the 42-year-old male claimed the drugs all belonged to him. He was charged with felony possession of meth and cocaine as well as misdemeanor possession of marijuana, THC gummies, and LSD.
No charges have been filed of Jan. 31 for the psilocybin mushrooms, which are on their way to the state crime lab for analysis, Welch said.
Officers charged the 36-year-old female with using a controlled substance after she was discharged from Campbell County Health.
