MERCED, Calif. (FOX26) — Two children are now with child protective services after the homeowner was arrested, accused of having a BHO lab in a barn.
Butane honey oil (BHO) labs are major fire hazards that use butane to extract THC.
In September a BHO lab caused a huge explosion in Merced that resulted in the death of a person who was in the house at the time.
Merced County Sheriff’s SET Team served a search warrant at a house in Merced that resulted in them finding a BHO lab in a barn.
During their search in the 400 block of Quinley Avenue, deputies say they found at least 3,600 pounds of finished marijuana product, 125 marijuana plants, and at least 5 pounds of concentrated cannabis.
Deputies arrested the homeowner, 37-year-old Joshua Alfonso, and charged him with several felonies including child endangerment.
Seven people were detained during the search and a 3-year-old boy and 11-year-old girl were given to child protective services.
