Cannabis extraction labs are extremely flammable and easily can cause explosions and flash fires.

Jacque Glessner of Tempe has been indicted by a state grand jury for allegedly operating a large-scale illegal cannabis extraction lab inside a condo.

Cannabis extraction labs, which extract butane honey oil or BHO, are extremely flammable and easily can cause explosions and flash fires.

The charges are based on an investigation by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, the Tempe Police Department and the Tempe Fire Department.

On Dec. 24, officers allegedly found the cannabis extraction lab at 140 E. Rio Salado Parkway, along with more than 300 pounds of marijuana and 75 pounds of cannabis extract. Investigators also found 20 gallons of butane in large canisters.

Officers temporarily evacuated a building at the condo. Glessner faces multiple charges.
