Cops: 3 little kids living in house with DMT drug lab
ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Two men were arrested Wednesday afternoon after police found a lab brewing the drug DMT in a house with three children under the age of 5 present.
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.
Curt Strickland, the DINT commander, says that the house has been quarantined until an environmental crew can clear the home.
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.
