A suspect is in custody after drug enforcement officers served a search warrant at a home that served as a butane honey oil lab in Shasta County, Shasta Interagency Narcotic Task Force reported Tuesday.

Codie Parnell, 22, was arrested at a residence located in the 800 block of Montcrest Drive in Redding. Officers found Parnell in the home along with a young child. Officers did not indicate the relationship, if any, of the child and the suspect.

During the raid agents said they also found thirteen 300 milliliter canisters of butane, a key ingredient in the extraction of cannabis.

In addition to the butane, investigators found more than 53 pounds of marijuana in the home.

Parnell was booked in to the Shasta county jail and faces charges of possession of marijuana for sale, manufacturing, compounding, converting, producing, deriving, processing, or preparing a controlled substance, and child endangerment.

The child was released to Shasta County Child and Family Services.
