OILDALE – On Thursday morning, police arrived at a home in the 400 block of Highland Drive to conduct a welfare check on a juvenile.
From this visit, they discovered an illegal drug lab and called narcotics investigators for backup.
In addition, area homes were also evacuated because of the potentially hazardous and flammable materials they found. Such materials are used in the making of honey oil.
At press time, three adults were arrested – 29-year-old Tyler Martino, 32-year-old David Dorsett, and 28-year-old Desarae Matney. Their charges included manufacturing a controlled substance, possession of marijuana for sale and felony child endangerment.
