DEXTER, Ore. -- Police seized 10 guns, more than 200 pounds of cannabis extracts, counterfeit vape cartridges and more at a property near Dexter.

Oregon State Police’s Northwest Region Marijuana team executed a search warrant Oct. 23 at a property in the 38000 block of Dexter Road.

Police said the search came after the Oregon Liquor Control Commission’s Medical Marijuana Division found an illegal marijuana extraction operation at an out-of-compliance medical grow site.

The laboratory was operating in a makeshift outdoor structure with unsanitary conditions, police said, and it was not licensed to process cannabis.

Police said two suspects were found at the property. The amount of cannabis extracts seized amounted to about 216 pounds. Also taken were two butane hash oil extraction machines valued at $120,000, police said. Multiple items found were tied to the manufacture and sale of counterfeit vape cartridges. One of the guns found was stolen, they said.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, Lane County Sheriff’s Office and OLCC assisted.

Charges will be forwarded to the Lane County District Attorney’s Office for consideration.

The suspects’ names have not been released at this time.
