LAPD blows up THC drug lab disguised as a pizza shop
Maybe they kneaded the dough.
What the LAPD said looked like a typical Los Angeles pizza parlor was actually functioning as a drug lab producing illegal THC concentrate.
The “super lab” was discovered by police officers in a store on Block 7300 of Radford Avenue in North Hollywood, next to an animal hospital. accordingly Commanding Officer Lillian L. Carranza.
Photos released by police show an officer standing next to giant vats used to cook the THC honey oil.
Other photos show plastic trays of oil stacked on kitchen shelves typically used for food.
Police search cardboard pizza boxes marked ‘hot and ready’
These types of labs, Carranza said, are the types of labs police have seen “explode, causing injury, property damage and sometimes death.”
“We’ve heard about secret ingredients, but this is awesome! It seems like criminals are getting more creative every day,” the LAPD said in a statement.
“From fake vending machines to pizza-making tricks, we’re well aware of these sneaky things, and we’re keeping our town safe with one clever glitch after another.” This super pizza lab won’t be making any more deliveries!”
Authorities have not said whether there have been any arrests in connection with the lab.
The raid came just days after an LAPD K9 dog sniffed out a huge stash of cash and heroin stuffed in a vending machine, KTLA reported.
On Tuesday, K9 Bosco responded to a scene in which police were executing a search warrant.
The dog showed police the vending machine, where they found a whopping 15 pounds of heroin, a kilogram of fentanyl and an assault rifle.
