Augusta men caught with 18 pounds of marijuana and four pounds of mushrooms

Date

Two Augusta friends were busted this week with a large amount of marijuana, magic mushrooms and two powerful guns at one of their homes, according to authorities.

Dalton James Fields, 27, and Dalton Bragg, 27, are named in arrest warrants for trafficking marijuana and being involved in the sale, distribution and possession of Psilocybin, or magic mushrooms. The warrants describe a search warrant Monday afternoon at Bragg’s residence at 2820 Brickrun Way in Augusta.

 In the garage, officers discovered 18 pounds of marijuana, including 15 pounds inside a cardboard box in the garage, packaged in 15 separate bags. Another three pounds were found in multiple plastic bags in the kitchen.

Officers also found four pounds of Psilocybin, or mushrooms, in the kitchen. They also found 34 chocolate bars laced with Psilocybin in a lower kitchen cabinet to the right of the refrigerator.

Fields was found with two powerful weapons, described as an Anderson Manufacturing AM-I5 5.56 rifle and a Citadel Boss 25 12 gauge shotgun.

Fields has been booked on charges of trafficking marijuana, sale, distribution, possession of dangerous drugs and weapon possession. Warrants exist for Bragg for trafficking marijuana and sale, distribution, possession of dangerous drugs, but they have not been served yet.

Instead, Bragg is being held without bond on outstanding warrants for felony burglary and misdemeanor battery. The fitness trainer is accused of striking a female in with his hands and feet on May 17, 2020, leaving the victim with a busted lip, a busted nose and large bruising on her face, legs and arms.  A year later, he allegedly broke into the victim’s residence by kicking in the garage door and ransacking the place, leaving $2,500 in damage, a warrant says.

Bragg’s Facebook page describes him as a personal trainer, electrician in Aiken and former sergeant with Marine Corps Recruiting. Fields lists his occupation as a welder and fabricator.

Bragg posted a photo of the pair together last July with a caption that ended this way: “Here’s to 27 years of being my partner in crime.”

  1. Unnecessary hyperbole – “…two powerful weapons, described as an Anderson Manufacturing AM-I5 5.56 rifle and a Citadel Boss 25 12 gauge shotgun.”? The AM-15 is Anderson’s designation for their standard AR-15 rifle. Compared to popular hunting ammunition like 30-06 Springfield and .308 and .270 Winchester, the 5.56×45 and its civilian equal, .223 Remington, are anemic. Some states ban these and similar .22-caliber ammunition for deer hunting, due to its inability to produce humane, one-shot kills. Our military is planning to replace the 5.56×45 cartridge for similar reasons and it’s inability to penetrate hard barriers like brick and concrete. But kudos for not using the media term “assault rifle”, as the “AR” stands for Armalite Rifle, the original manufacturer.

    There are an estimated 18 million AR-15s in the U.S., and untold numbers of 12-gauge shotguns. These firearms are not unique to criminal enterprise nor are they unusually powerful. Petty criminals cannot afford truly powerful firearms and the ammunition they fire.
