Augusta teacher accused of growing magic mushrooms

An Augusta teacher has been arrested on suspicion of growing psychedelic mushrooms along with other drug and weapons counts.

Kenyon Booz, 31, was arrested Aug. 26, the day after a search warrant was served at his home in the 3000 block of Happy Drive.

A spokeswoman for the Richmond County School System confirms that he’s a teacher. The T.W. Josey High School records show he was an environmental sciences teacher there within the past two years.

The district released this statement:

“Once released from jail, Kenyon Booz will be placed on leave. Pending results of the inquiry, appropriate personnel action will be taken.”

He remained in jail Thursday.
