Dangers of processors

 After obtaining a search warrant on Friday, detectives located an extensive butane honey oil operation in a pop-up garage, along with 3,000 pounds of loose marijuana, eight firearms, gun parts and cash. In addition, 25 pounds of processed butane honey oil was found, officials said.

"This was a dangerous drug lab that was set up in a residential neighborhood in a heavily wooded area," Santa Cruz Sheriff Jim Hart said in a news release.

Due to the potential fire hazard of dismantling the lab, a highly trained private company was found to safely dismantle the operation, limiting the risk of fire or explosion, Hart said.
