Law enforcement officials arrested four people Thursday, Nov. 8, after busting a DMT drug lab and suspected drug-peddling operation.
Inside, law enforcement officers found heroin, LSD, ecstasy methamphetamine, marijuana, an assault rifle, shotguns, other weapons and a Dimethyltryptamine (DMT) lab, police said.
Police had arrested two men and one woman as of 5 p.m. and arrested one more man when he came home to find police searching the apartment, according to Sgt. Dan Bicencio of the Mountain View police.
Jerrod Kensil, 29, Guadalupe Villador, 42, David Strang, 40, and Richard Rosen, 32, who are all Mountain View residents, were booked into the Santa Clara County Jail Thursday, Bicencio said.
Mountain View police Sgt. Sean Thompson said that DMT drug labs are very rare.
Thompson said he believed the lab was the third DMT lab to be busted in state and the first in the Bay Area.
Police worked to clear the area of DMT ended their investigation around 10 p.m. Thursday, according to Bicencio.
DMT is classified as a Schedule I substance by the federal government and is a hallucinogen that occurs in plants and can also be made in a lab.
