A man was arrested Friday after law enforcement officers received an anonymous tip that he was manufacturing several kinds of hallucinogenic drugs, according to a news release issued Wednesday.

Investigators with the Statesboro-Bulloch Crime Suppression Team and Statesboro police officers responded Friday to a residence in the 200 block of Vista Circle for a drug complaint, the release says.

Investigators made contact with Mica Eugene Baggett, 24, of the residence. After a brief investigation, they found several hallucinogenic drugs and the ingredients needed to manufacture them, according to the release.

The powerful hallucinogenic drugs found include dimethyltryptamine, or DMT; mescaline, derived from the peyote cactus; and psilocybin, derived from psilocybin mushrooms, the release says.

Baggett was charged with criminal attempt to manufacture a schedule 1 narcotic (DMT), manufacturing mescaline, possession of psilocybin, possession of marijuana and possession of a drug-related object.

All of the seized items will be transported to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation crime lab in Savannah for testing.

Baggett was released after posting a $10,000 bond.
