OROVILLE, Calif. - Two were arrested after deputies with the Butte County Sheriff's Office discovered a butane honey oil extraction laboratory.

The Butte County Sheriff's Office Special Enforcement Unit and Investigations Unit served a search warrant at the residence in the 2600 block of V-6 Road in Oroville around 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday. 

During their search, they discovered a butane honey oil extraction laboratory as well as a small amount of methamphetamine. 

Jason Michael Parrish, 37, was booked into Butte County Jail for manufacturing a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance. His bail was set at $103,000. 

Chelsey Gutierrez, 25, was booked into Butte County Jail for manufacturing a controlled substance and a probation violation. Her bail was set at $101,000. 

The sheriff's office said that butane honey oil extraction labs have become more prominent with the legalization of marijuana in California.

We have beautiful weather around northern California right now, but it will get a lot more unsettled this weekend as a storm moves overhead. We can expect gusty wind, a big cooldown, and areas of light to moderate rain.
