TOLEDO, Ohio -- Toledo police say more than 135 pounds of psychedelic mushrooms seized from several northwest Ohio homes have an estimated value of $3.1 million.

Three men have been charged with drug-related felony counts in connection with the alleged growing operation.

It was discovered early this week by police responding to a report of a burglary at a Toledo home.

Police said they believe the growing operation had been ongoing for several years and that the distribution extended beyond the city, though they declined to share details.

They also said they were surprised to find such a large amount of mushrooms because they didn't think there was significant demand for them.
