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.
