An 18-year-old woman and a 22-year-old man face a litany of charges after police in southern Weld County stopped their car and found a variety of drugs on her person, including a freezer bag of mushrooms in her pants and almost a pound of marijuana in the car, in addition to two guns.
After a Weld County sheriff’s deputy at about midnight Friday stopped a car for failing to yield in Mead on Weld County Road 34, deputies found Dakota Huscher, 22, in the driver’s seat and Baylee Beachamp, 18, as a passenger, according to an affidavit for Beachamp’s arrest. The deputy noticed a bulge in Beachamp’s pants and asked her what it was.
“This is about to get stupid,” she replied as she pulled a “gallon freezer bag full of mushrooms,” from her pants. Deputies later found it weighed about six ounces.
Beachamp also admitted to having other drugs on her person as well as guns in the car. Deputies found a shotgun with a 13-inch barrel hidden inside a pillowcase in the car, and a Glock 22 with a loaded magazine in the glove box.
In addition to that, deputies found an array of drugs in the car, including more than 9 grams of marijuana wax, almost 25 grams of heroin, 19.1 grams of cocaine and 4.8 grams of LSD. They also recovered 14.12 ounces of marijuana from the car’s front seat, and two scales, which are commonly used to weigh drugs, as well as baggies used to package drugs, the affidavit stated.
Deputies learned Beachamp had a misdemeanor warrant for her arrest issued from Larimer County. They arrested her and took her to the Weld County Jail. As deputies booked her into jail, the report stated, they found a final baggie of cocaine on her person. It
