Drug Agents Targeting Honey Oil Lab Busts

May 22, 2014 7:54 PM

There are more Butane Honey Oil Lab busts in Butte County than in any other county in California. The Butte County Special Enforcement Unit is busy busting honey oil labs and illegal marijuana grows. Investigators say a Chico State student has a warrant for his arrest, charged in connection with making honey oil. He was severely burned Sunday, after authorities say he started a fire in his upstairs apartment on Rio Chico Way. The penalty for making honey oil is 3, 5, or 7 years, depending on prior criminal history. If there is an explosion or fire, the perpetrator could also face an arson charge.
