“On April 27th, detectives with the Placer County Sheriff’s Office served a search warrant at a residence on Mockingbird Hill Road, in Weimar. Earlier in April, detectives received information that Butane honey/hash oil (BHO) was being manufactured inside the residence. Detectives searched the home and located the suspect, 57-year-old Larry Henricks, who was detained.
Detectives found butane and paraphernalia used to make butane honey oil inside Henricks’ residence. BHO labs are highly dangerous facilities used to extract tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) using butane. These labs are highly flammable and have caused several explosions and fires around Placer County over the years. Detectives also located nearly 12 grams of suspected methamphetamine, a prescription for Tradazone in someone else’s name, and just over nine grams of Fentanyl.
Henricks was arrested for manufacturing a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance for sale.
Fentanyl is turning up in many of our public safety encounters; there have already been more than half a dozen deaths as a result of Fentanyl poisoning in Placer County.
Fentanyl is often added to pills marketed as “prescription” opiates, anti-depressants, etc. Fentanyl on the black market is highly unregulated – just two grains of it can kill you. Please speak to your loved ones about seeking medical help if they are feeling stressed or depressed.”
