WARWICK, RI — On March 4, Officers Robert Macera and Michael Bailey were called to Best Western hotel, 2138 Post Road to remove a man reportedly yelling at the staff, then arrested him for illegal mushroom possession.

At the hotel, staff said the man staying at room #113 had been yelling at them and refused to leave his room. The officers visited the room and spoke with the man, Daniel E. Golden, 28, of 727 Atwood Ave., Cranston, RI. Golden invited them inside the room to talk after they advised him he had been asked to leave the building, according to Macera’s report.

The officers stepped inside, and Macera reported seeing a large bag placed on the nightstand between the beds in the room. Inside the bag, Macera could see mushrooms, which he suspected were Psilocybin mushrooms, hallucinogenic substances.

In the bag were five smaller bags, and a scale with residue on it, Macera noted in the report.

Macera placed Golden into handcuffs, read him his rights and transported him to Warwick Police Headquarters, 99 Veterans Memorial Drive, where he was processed and charged with Possession of a Schedule I-V Controlled Substance.
