An Alabama woman, and her husband who worked as a warden in a correctional facility, were arrested and accused of multiple drug offenses including manufacturing and possession.

According to reports, the Limestone County Correctional Facility warden has worked for the Alabama Department of Corrections for more than two decades. Prior to his current post, the 45-year-old man was the warden at the Birmingham Community Based Facility for women.  He and his 55-year-old wife share a home in the local area, and court records indicate that since September 2022, they have been under investigation for the manufacturing of psilocybin (psychedelic) mushrooms in the residence.

On the morning of April 19, the Alabama Department of Corrections Law Enforcement Services Division, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency’s SWAT team, and the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office went to the address with warrants to search the premises, in addition to the man’s business office. They also had arrest warrants for him and his wife.

Late in the evening on February 4, 41-year-old Christopher Singleton was reportedly driving in a pickup truck in Wildwood, Florida. 

An officer on patrol saw the license plate on the vehicle and believed that the registration tag looked suspicious. It reportedly appeared as if it was skewed sideways.

32-year-old Jerilee Hughes was arrested after the Northwest Narcotics Task Force searched her home and found glass jars with psilocybin mushroom spores and growing supplies, as well as a small bag of useable mushrooms. Police also procured small amounts of marijuana and methamphetamine as well as residue-coated paraphernalia.

Hughes faces two felony and five misdemeanor drug related charges. During her bond hearing, the prosecuting attorney accused Hughes of cultivating enough mushrooms to consider her a danger to the community. She is being held on $10,000 bond.

Due to financial hardship, Hughes, who alleges she has never before been implicated in legal issues, asked for a lower bond. She willingly offered to participate if a stipulation was added where she take part in regular drug testing.
