A traffic stop Tuesday led Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputies to homes in Citrus Heights and Fair Oaks allegedly involved in processing butane honey oil.

Problem-oriented police officers with the Sheriff’s North Division conducted a vehicle stop that led to the discovery of a form of butane honey oil in the car, according to a Sheriff’s Department news release. The officers, along with detectives from the California Multi-jurisdictional Methamphetamine Enforcement Team and High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas continued their investigation.

This led to the search of two residences, one in the 6200 block of Cavan Drive in Citrus Heights and the other in the 3200 block of Candace Drive in Fair Oaks, believed to involved in butane honey oil processing, sheriff’s officials said.

Butane hash oil is a highly concentrated form of cannabis and illegal manufacturing operations have been blamed for a number of fires.

Two men were taken into custody. Gregory Wayne Wilson, 23, was arrested on suspicion of drug manufacturing, conspiracy and possession of an assault rifle. Gary Dean Huffman, 22, was arrested on suspicion of drug manufacturing and conspiracy.
