  • Hallucinogenic mushrooms, marijuana and MDMA — a pure form of the drug Ecstasy — were seized during a traffic stop in the town of Florida on Sunday, the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office said.
    During the stop on state Highway 30, a male passenger began acting oddly — throwing items around in the vehicle and asking to get out.
    When the driver opened the door to let the man out, the officer making the stop could see illegal substances in plain sight, deputies said.
    An additional search of the vehicle found a large quantity of MDMA, mushrooms and marijuana, as well as a scale, empty pill capsules and a tool used for loading capsules, deputies said.
    Christopher Broems, 23, and Brittany Mahler, 22, both of Merrick, were arrested and charged with two counts each of felony criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and misdemeanor fifth-degree criminal possession of marijuana.
    Both were arraigned and sent to Montgomery County jail in lieu of $25,000 cash bail or $50,000 bail bond, deputies said.
