INDEPENDENCE, OR (KPTV) -

An active butane hash oil lab was found with 216 pounds of marijuana and 30 ounces of finished oil, as well as methamphetamine, cocaine and psilocybin mushrooms, according to deputies.

A search warrant was served at a home on the 8400 block of Buena Vista Road in Independence on Tuesday.

The Polk County Interagency Narcotics Team was assisted by Oregon State Police and the Polk County Sheriff’s Office in serving the warrant.

Polk County Fire District No. 1 responded to assist in dismantling the scene due to the hazards and potential for explosion and fire with active butane hash oil labs.

Detectives collected 216 pounds of marijuana, which was being used to make the extract.

The finished product found at the lab has an estimated street value of $25,000, according to detectives.

Three men were arrested in connection with the investigation.

Dennis Lee Underwood, 35, Joseph Matthew Soulier, 38, and Brandon Michael Axmaker, 18, are facing charges of unlawful manufacture and possession of marijuana extract.

Underwood faces additional charges of possession of cocaine, meth and psilocybin mushrooms. Soulier also faces a charge of unlawful possession of cocaine.
