YREKA, Calif.-- The Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office shut down a drug lab in Yreka.

Earlier this month, deputies arrested Erik Setzer on a series of offenses including criminal threats, possession of stolen property, possession of explosives and assault with a deadly weapon.

Deputies went back to search his home last Thursday to make sure there were no other public health threats and found a recently used meth and hash oil lab plus an illegal pot grow.

This all means additional charges for Setzer.

Plus, a couple of men showed up during the search and police arrested one on drug possession charges.
