COHASSET, Calif. - The Butte County Sheriff's Special Enforcement Unit served a search warrant at a Cohasset home and busted a drug lab.

The agents went to the 10200 block of Cohasset Road in the town of Cohasset on Dec. 13 when they came across a Butane Honey Oil lab consisting of extraction tubes, butane canisters and a vacuum purge oven. 

In the lab they found a small amount of Butane Honey Oil as well as several pounds of processed marijuana and marijuana shake, several firearms and approximately 2 and a half ounces of methamphetamine. 

Officers arrested Lee Bruce Fox, 55, for possession for sale of methamphetamine, manufacturing a controlled substance, armed in the commission of a felony, possession of ammunition by a felon, possession of a firearm by a felon and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The first weekend of autumn was pleasant for northern California, but our relatively tranquil weather will change soon. A Pacific storm is approaching the West Coast, and it will bring our area rain showers and gusty wind soon.
