Greensboro, NC -- Police say they tested the chemicals they found in a home on Regents Park Lane, which prompted deputies to call the bomb squad Friday during a drug operations raid.
The Guilford County Sheriff's Office said the chemicals were used to facilitate the growth of psilocybin - synthetic mushrooms - and were not used for manufacturing explosives.
Friday, deputies served a warrant to a home on Regents Park Lane. Deputies said they suspected the residents were growing marijuana. Several items found during the search prompted deputies to call the bomb squad, including: a room sealed with plastic, a pressure cooker and unfamiliar chemicals.

Friday, the sheriff's office said both were charged with Possession with Intent to Sell and Deliver Marijuana, Possession with Intent to Sell and Deliver Psilocybin (Synthetic Mushrooms), Manufacturing Psilocybin, Manufacturing Marijuana and Conspiracy to Manufacture.
