Arrests made during DEA raid on home in Alpine

Posted: Updated:

ALPINE (CBS 8) - A raid on an East County home takes out an alleged ecstasy and hash oil extraction lab.

DEA officials confirm a man and a woman who were living in the house on the 400 block of Summerhill Terrace in Alpine were arrested.

"With the explosive nature, when you get the butane for the hash oil extraction and all the chemicals involved in making ecstasy... It is extremely dangerous," DEA spokeswoman Amy Roderick said. 

The DEA says dangerous chemicals used to manufacture the drugs were also found.

And while few ecstasy operations have been shut down in San Diego County over the past year, this was one of a growing number of alleged labs they've seen in our area.

"They are becoming very common -- we see the hash oil labs in approximately 75 percent of the indoor marijuana grow operations right now," Roderick said.

Hazmat crews were also called in to dispose of any dangerous chemicals found in the home.
