     Agents located LSD in the residence along with what appeared to be psilocybin mushrooms. Agents located evidence for a butane hash lab in the residence. Agents located two composite knuckles , which are commonly referred to as (brass knuckles) for fighting. Agents located two explosive type devices in the bedroom. The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Bomb Disposal Unit responded to the residence to investigate those two devices. Agents and the two subjects that were detained left the residence until the Bomb Disposal Unit responded. At no time were the surrounding neighbors in any danger. The Sheriff’s Office Bomb Disposal Unit took custody of the two devices and transported them out of the area to be destroyed at a later time.

     Agents noticed a possible fire hazard with electrical wiring associated with the indoor marijuana growing operation. Agents then contacted Humboldt County Building and Planning Department, who then responded to the residence. After Humboldt County Building and Planning Department inspected the electrical wiring they determined that it was a possible fire hazard. Humboldt County Building and Planning Department then contacted PG&E to have the electrical power shut off to the residence.

     Roman was arrested for cultivation and possession for sales of marijuana, possession of a dangerous weapon, possession of LSD, possession of psilocybin mushrooms, possession of destruction devices and for the manufacturing of a hash lab. Roman’s bail was set at $500,000 dollars.

     Senzig was arrested for cultivation and possession for sales of marijuana her bail was set at $25,000 dollars.
