Anderson's new Problem Oriented Policing Unit arrested a man Wednesday who was allegedly making butane honey oil at a home where a four-year-old child lives.

Members of the P.O.P. unit conducted a probation search at the home of 25-year-old Daylan McDonald and say they found evidence of a honey oil lab with 80 butane canisters on the back deck of his house. Police say there was a four-year-old child living in the home.

McDonald also allegedly had marijuana and an ounce of honey oil in his vehicle and further investigation revealed that McDonald had rented a local motel room for the purpose of illegal marijuana sales.

McDonald was booked into the Shasta County Jail on suspicion of manufacturing a controlled substance, possession of marijuana for sales, and child endangerment.

Anderson's new P.O.P. unit is made up of three veteran officers and K-9 Aero. The team patrols Anderson by checking up on repeat offenders, spending time in historically problematic areas, interacting with Anderson residents and taking on long-term projects aimed at reducing crime in the community.
