ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Two men were arrested Wednesday afternoon after police found a lab brewing a new type of drug.
The Douglas Interagency Narcotics Team served a search warrant at a home on Wharton Street in Roseburg, where they say they found a drug lab.
Jared Wilson, 24, and Jessey Smith, 30, were arrested for allegedly making DMT.
The drug is a Hallucinogen similar to LSD, but is made in a way similar to meth, which makes a DMT lab extremely dangerous.
DINT officials say this is the first time they've come across this drug in this area.
Curt Strickland, the DINT commander, says that the house has been quarantined until an environmental crew can clear the home.
Strickland says some of the drugs were stored with food in the home. "There was some finished product in a freezer in the garage, mixed in with the food," he said.
The two were charged with unlawful manufacture and possession of a controlled substance within a thousand feet of a school.
There were three children, all under the age of 5 living at the house, so both men were also charged with three counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
"A lot of the seriousness of the situation is compounded because there were three children there, also that it's close to the school," Strickland said. "I mean that's not a good situation, but three kids shouldn't be living right in amongst a drug house like that. In the past, we've had that situation with meth labs, and we're just really hoping that that isn't the situation with this stuff in the future."
The home is across Harvard Avenue from Fir Grove Elementary School.
