On Saturday, February 26, 2022, detectives with the Douglas Interagency Narcotics Team (DINT) were informed of a commercial fire in the 300 block of Beaver Lane, in Roseburg, Oregon. The structure which was on fire was believed to be the site of a cannabis extraction lab.
DINT detectives arrived at the location and began an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the fire. DINT detectives learned the building was sub-leased to two separate companies, who conducted unrelated business out of the building.
The fire resulted in the complete loss of the structure and lab, as well as the neighboring businesses property.
Observations made from outside the structure indicated there was equipment associated with the extraction of cannabis. DINT detectives also spoke with individuals who confirmed the location was being used as an ethanol-based cannabis extraction lab.
DINT detectives later served a search warrant at the location to determine origin and cause of the fire, as well as the seizure of cannabis from the location.
The investigation is on going and detectives are interested in the whereabouts of a possibly involved individual, 31-year-old Levi Miller, of Roseburg.
DINT was assisted by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Douglas County Fire District #2, and the Oregon State Fire Marshalls office.
