A Cary man is accused of manufacturing a hallucinogenic drug from what the Food and Drug Administration defines as an “Amazonian psychoactive plant mixture.”
The Cary Police Department accused David Anthony Trombley, 26, on Friday of making dimethyltryptamine, also known as DMT, a powerful psychedelic agent, according to an arrest warrant. He faces a felony charge for the manufacture of the drug, the warrant states.
Trombley is accused of making the drug by combining a household substance with “ayahuasca,” the warrant states. Ayahuasca is a mix of the “Banisteriopsis caapi vine and the hallucinogenic plant Psychotria viridis,” according to the FDA. It “has long been used by aboriginal populations for its putative spiritual and medicinal benefits,” the administration writes.
Trombley also was accused on Friday of trafficking in the hallucinogen LSD, according to an arrest warrant. Police suspect he possessed 125 doses of the drug, the warrant states. Trombley also is charged with maintaining a dwelling for the keeping of the drug, the warrant states.
Trombley’s listed address is 105 Breckenwood Drive in Cary; the property belongs to two other people who share Trombley’s last name, according to property records.
Trombley also faces a felony charge that he illegally possessed amphetamine and Adderall pills, which are Schedule II drugs, according to an arrest warrant. Finally, he faces a misdemeanor charge of possessing marijuana paraphernalia; police suspect he had “glass marijuana bongs,” a warrant states.
Trombley was held Sunday at the Wake County Detention Center on $245,000 bond, according to county records.
