Nevada County bust: Authorities find suspected drugs, assault rifles

Nevada County authorities say they found almost an ounce of suspected psilocybin mushrooms, along with methamphetamine, LSD and assault rifles, after searching a Peardon Road home.

Joseph William Axtell, 60, and Duke John Charlesworth, 51, both of Smartsville, each face charges of possession of a controlled substance while armed. Axtell faces an additional charge of possession of a controlled substance, and Charlesworth has a charge of possession of a controlled substance for sale, Nevada County Jail reports state.

Authorities found the suspected drugs and weapons Wednesday after serving a search warrant at both men’s home in the 10000 block of Peardon Road, a release states.
