As a result, here is what the officers seized –

  • 17 marijuana plants;
  • $17,169.00 in currency;
  • One fully functional commercial grade Butane Honey Oil (BHO) Lab.

Consequently, officers arrested, cited and released six people for a misdemeanor violation of marijuana sales and a county ordinance violation –

  • Neil Riley (28),
  • Eric Silva (33),
  • Brentney Anderson (33),
  • Tanya Pace (28),
  • Christopher Lawhon (33),
  • and Harold Stowers (44).

However, 33-year-old Justin Scott faced a different result. His charges are –

  • violation of maintaining a business for the purposes of marijuana sales,;
  • felony conspiracy
  • manufacturing a controlled substance;
  • misdemeanor sales of marijuana;
  • and a misdemeanor county ordinance violation.

The KCSO says, “BHO Labs are dangerous for both the operators of the equipment and the general public. BHO Labs are highly explosive and have exploded on several occasions in the past causing serious injury and death. Both of these locations were selling marijuana without permits and outside of the county ordinances. All of the individuals arrested in this investigation were either cited or booked into the jail pending court proceedings.”
