2 Arrested after Advertising Mushroom For Sale at the Gathering of the Juggalos

The Gathering is all about having fun. And it is. Some people have fun in different ways than others. That’s cool. But honestly, ya gotta be smart about you’re shit. Gnome sayin’?

This year at the Gathering, 2 ninjas got the bone when one of them was spotted by police sporting a sign that was advertising Mushroom for sale. The other was then seen supplying the first with Mushrooms. Once they were arrested and searched they were found to be holding 129 grams altogether.

They’ve both since been released but a future court date is set for August.

Aggravated traffickingpossession of drugs and disorderly conduct also lead to 3 more arrests this year.

A stabbing occurred but no arrests were made and everything is cleared up.

The Sheriff’s office did go on record to say “For the most part the crowd was pretty well behaved,” so that’s dope.

NewarkAdvocate.com has released an article about the arrests made and talked to the Licking County Sheriff’s Office. You can check out that full news article by CLICKING HERE or check that out below.

Juggalos Gathering: 2 arrested after wearing sign advertising mushrooms

THORNVILLE – Two people were arrested after a woman wore a sign advertising mushrooms for sale during the Insane Clown Posse concert over the weekend.

Kelly Junkin, 51, of Richmond, Indiana, was allegedly wearing a sign around her neck advertising she had mushrooms for sale, according to a statement of facts in the arrest warrant.

Officers also observed Dewayne Johnson, 35, of Greens Fork, Indiana, providing mushrooms to Junkin.

Junkin and Johnson admitted they came to the concert, held at Legend Valley in Thornville, for the sole purpose of selling psilocybin mushrooms. Psilocybin is a schedule 1 controlled substance.

The Gathering of the Juggalos returned to Legend Valley July 18-22 after a year-long hiatus from the venue.

Authorities recovered 63 grams of the drugs from Junkin and 66 grams from Johnson, according to the statement of facts. The bulk amount for the drug is 30 grams.

Junkin and Johnson were each charged with aggravated trafficking of drugs, third-degree felonies.

Both were both released on their own recognizance and are set for preliminary hearings Aug. 2

Junkin and Johnson were not the only two Juggalos, the common name for fans of the Insane Clown Posse, arrested during the weekend concert.

Christopher Bridie, 27, of Pompano Beach, Florida, was charged with aggravated trafficking, a fourth-degree felony. Spencer T. Gorman, 31, homeless, was charged with aggravated possession of drugs.

The final arrest from the weekend was an Illinois man for disorderly conduct, a misdeamnor.

A person did receive minor stab wounds while attending the concert. According to a report from the Licking County Sheriff’s Office, a Wisconsin-man had two small puncture wounds, one on his left side of his back and one in his front left groin area.

The man said he received the wounds while in the mosh pit at the concert. The wounds were superficial and the man did not know who stabbed him.

Licking County Sheriff’s Office Colonel Chad Dennis said the sheriff’s office has plans in place for when groups like the Juggalos visit. The first day undercover officers identify where drugs are coming from inside a venue and then the last day or two they start making undercover buys and arrests.

Even though the crowd of about 4,000 to 5,000 people was larger than predicted, Dennis said problems will come up.

“For the most part the crowd was pretty well behaved,” he said.
