Globe Breakfast Treat

It's sugary cereal that will have you tripping:

"A man accused in a Saturday hit-and-run near Rowes Wharf was allegedly carrying drugs including hallucinogen-laced treats made with Rice Krispies and Trix cereal. The man, who police identified as Jesse George Rausch, 26, of Enfield, Conn., hit several vehicles near 70 Rowes Wharf and then attempted to run away, according to Boston police. A Boston Harbor Hotel security officer saw the incident and detained the man with the help of a civilian and a Homeland Security officer who was in the area, according to police, who arrived around 6:15 p.m. Rausch appeared to be on drugs, police said. In his vehicle, they allegedly found many packaged treats that they believed were laced with a hallucinogen and intended for sale. Police also said they found what they suspected to be hashish, more than $1,200 in cash, and drug paraphernalia. Boston police also allegedly found a large nitrous oxide tank in his vehicle, a discovery that required the assistance of the department’s bomb squad. Officials eventually cleared the scene. Police frisked Rausch and found him carrying what they said appeared to be acid and crystal meth. Rausch was arrested and charged with four counts of possession with an intent to distribute class B drugs, possession of class C drugs, and two counts of possession of class D drugs. He is also accused of operating under the influence of a controlled substance and leaving the scene of a motor vehicle crash causing personal injury and property damage, according to Boston police."
