On Monday, April 23, 2007, the Sheriff’s Office Cal-MMET team
located a methamphetamine lab inside a residence, located at 4075
Hobart Ave, in unincorporated San Jose. A probation search was
conducted based on concerns that narcotic activity was on going at the
residence. During the search, Sheriff’s Cal-MMET Deputy Doug Ulrich
located the components for the production of methamphetamine inside a
segregated portion of the household.
inside the lab was discovered to be in various stages including liquid
and solid forms. After arresting two suspects, the lab was dismantled
and cleaned up with the assistance of the Department of Justice Bureau
of Narcotics Enforcement team (BNE). A 2-year-old child was referred to
the children’s shelter as a result of the arrests. The County
department of environmental health came out to certify that the
segregated portion of the house was uninhabitable and they monitored
the clean up.
