Shasta Interagency Narcotic Task Force agents served a search warrant at a home on the 2700 block of Keswick Dam Road.
Jonathan Marshall of Sonoma County was suspected of manufacturing Butane Honey Oil.
Agents located an elaborate hydroponic indoor marijuana grow covering the whole basement.
They found numerous bags of ground marijuana as well as storage coolers on the patio.
One of the bedrooms had machining equipment to manufacture AR-15 style rifles.
One complete non serialized rifle as well as 3 others in different stages of manufacturing.
They also found thousands of rounds of ammunition and over a dozen 30 round mags.
Outside of the home in the backyard they found a complex commercial grade Butane Honey Oil extraction system.
The system was fully functional and mid stage of processing Butane Honey Oil.
Over 1 pound of Honey Oil was found from the system and inside the house.
The lab took 5 hours to safely disassemble and transport from the scene.
Jonathan Marshall has not been located.
A complaint for manufacturing a controlled substance by chemical extraction will be filed with the Shasta County District Attorney’s Office.
Additional charges regarding weapons manufacturing are still being investigated.
