Police arrested three people after officers reportedly found drugs during a search of their home.

Blair Eckhardt, 25, Michael Sammons, 31, and Todd Burzynski, 31, all of Iowa City, were charged with keeping a drug house, failing to possess a drug tax stamp, possession of marijuana, and possession of psilocybin.

Eckhardt and Burzynksi were also charged with possession of psilocybin with intent to manufacture, and Sammons was charged with possession of a firearm as a felon.

Officers from the Department of Corrections High Risk Unit went to 815 N. Dodge St. on Nov. 5 for a probation check, authorities said.

During the check, officers reportedly found psilocybin along with other illegal items. After obtaining a search warrant for the property, officers searched the residence with the help of the Iowa City police; they allegedly discovered a psilocybin manufacturing lab, numerous bags of psilocybin, marijuana, four firearms, ammunition, packaging materials, scales, cash, and other items.
