As UC Santa Barbara heads into finals week and graduation, a haul of psilocybin mushrooms, fake Xanax, and MDMA — commonly known as ecstasy or molly — was seized in neighboring Isla Vista on Monday. Thomas Hung, 21, was arrested on Abrego Road by Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s deputies on a warrant issued after they received a tip last Tuesday about illegal narcotics for sale. More than 175 counterfeit Xanax pills were confiscated during the arrest. Hung was held in the Main Jail on charges of felony transportation and sales of controlled substances, possession, and cultivation of psilocybin on $30,000 bail.
