Forest Grove man pleads guilty in hashish explosion

Posted: Updated:
FOREST GROVE, OR (KPTV) -

A Forest Grove man pleaded guilty Monday, 20 days after a hashish oil explosion rocked his home and injured five people, including a toddler and an infant.

The judge sentenced Bernard Heflin to three years of formal probation. He will have to work through his parole officer in order to have contact with his children, and he'll also have to complete drug and parenting classes.

The sentence handed down Monday came after Heflin pleaded guilty to one count of controlled substance and one count of child neglect.

Back on March 4, Heflin first claimed he was cooking eggs when the explosion happened, but he eventually admitted to cooking hashish oil, using butane as a solvent, investigators said.

Heflin, two women, a 10-day-old infant and a 20-month-old child were inside the home when the explosion happened.

Police responded after getting a report of a loud boom and a man running up and down the street, screaming that he had been burned.
