SOUTHINGTON — A local man faces charges after authorities reportedly found multiple bags of hallucinogenic mushrooms, marijuana and a stolen motorcycle in his home during a parole compliance check. 

Derick Markavich, 31, of 115 Norton St., was charged Monday with possession of narcotics with intent to sell, possession of a controlled substance near a school, illegal manufacturing/distribution of drugs and second-degree larceny. 

On Monday parole officers visited Markavich’s home and found a box in the basement that contained marijuana, hallucinogenic mushrooms, vape oil with cannabis, digital scales, hypodermic needles, bags consistent with drug packaging and a pipe, said police spokesman Lt. Stephen Elliott.

Local police also responded and found a 2015 Yamaha motorcycle that was reported stolen, Elliott said. 

Markavich’s bond was set at $50,000.
