Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies discovered an alleged concentrated marijuana grow lab after being called to the scene of a party at a vacant property in Canyon Country on Saturday evening.

“We had information that there was going to be a large party at the location, so we had deputies going to check the location out and ended up coming across this,” said Sgt. Kirt Messerschmidt with the SCV Sheriff’s Station.

When deputies arrived at the property on the 28400 block of Oak Spring Canyon Road around 6:30 p.m., they discovered the drug lab and were able to detain three people, according to Messerschmidt.

Los Angeles County Fire officials were then dispatched to the scene of a possible “marijuana or unknown substance grow lab” at 6:34 p.m., according to Supervisor Imy McBride.

This resulted in a response from the SCV Sheriff’s Narcotics Team and L.A. County hazardous materials crew, who were there to avoid any hazardous materials to cause harm to anyone, according to Lt. Robert Hahnlein.
