No suspects are in custody for the suspected clandestine lab at this time. Investigation to continue.    
 
(Oxnard, CA)On November 2, 2011 the Ventura County Combined Agencies Team (VCAT) discovered a methamphetamine lab during the course of a narcotics investigation. The lab, located in the 1200 block of Isleton Place in the City of Oxnard was disposed of by VCAT investigators in conjunction with agents from the California State Department of Justice, Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement (BNE). Nearby neighbors were evacuated as a precaution while the lab was being processed and disposed of. Oxnard City Fire Department also responded to the scene. VCAT is the primary responder to lab investigations in Ventura County, and it is standard operating procedure that BNE will respond to assist with the processing of these sites when available. No further information is available at this time, as this investigation is continuing.
 
Methamphetamine labs are inherently dangerous as they pose risk to the public due to being highly toxic and potentially explosive. Anyone who suspects a lab is present, or who has information about a lab should take the necessary precautions to stay away and notify the VCAT taskforce immediately at 383-8700. If after hours, call 911. Because of the volatility of these labs, an immediate response is necessary to minimize danger to the public.
 
The Ventura County Combined Agencies Team is a taskforce comprised of law enforcement investigators from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, The Oxnard Police Department, The Ventura County District Attorney’s Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration.
