      Rochester man accused of selling pot and hallucinogenic mushrooms out of an ice cream truck

      Prosecutors say a western New York pharmacy student has been accused of dealing drugs from an ice cream truck.

      U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr. says 23-year-old Abraham Reinhardt of Rochester sold hallucinogenic mushrooms and marijuana from the truck during the summer in Cheektowaga.

      He says the St. John Fisher College student was arrested as he was about to sell 80 Oxymorphone tablets, some marijuana and hallucinogenic mushrooms in a store parking lot.

      Authorities say that after his arrest, a search of Reinhardt's home turned up more of those drugs.

      Reinhardt was released on bail after an initial court appearance Thursday. He faces a drug possession charge that carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison.

      Court officials weren't available to say if he has a lawyer.
