On Wednesday, May 25, 2016, at about 11:45 a.m., Humboldt County Deputy Sheriffs served a Humboldt County Superior Court search warrant to a residence on the 700 block of Golden Gate Drive in Carlotta. Upon serving the search warrant, deputies located a sophisticated closed loop Butane Honey Oil (BHO) hash lab constructed inside a detached garage. Deputies located large amounts of butane, indicia, documentation of sales, digital scales, a firearm, BHO product, and approximately 733 lbs. of marijuana shake.
No suspects were located on scene. This is an ongoing investigation, and arrest warrants will be issued for persons responsible for the BHO operation. The BHO lab was dismantled and seized as evidence.
