San Luis Obispo County narcotics officers raided a rural home in Arroyo Grande last week and arrested three people on suspicion of child endangerment and manufacturing hash oil.
At about 1:30 p.m. Thursday, members of the Sheriff’s Office’s Narcotics Unit served a search warrant at the home on the 2200 block of Willow Road.
Officers allegedly found a butane honey oil conversion lab used to convert low-grade marijuana into oil containing highly concentrated THC, the principle psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.
The process has a high risk of explosions, the Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.

Two children, ages 12 and 15, were at the home at the time, the Sheriff’s Office said, as was a 10-month-old boy, found sleeping on a mattress on the floor. The area surrounding the mattress was allegedly covered with marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
According to Sheriff’s Office spokesman Tony Cipolla, Child Welfare Services took custody of the boy, who later tested positive for marijuana.
Cipolla said the boy remained in county custody Monday; the older children had been placed in the care of a family member.
Damien Glos, 41, of Arroyo Grande was arrested on suspicion of manufacture and sale of a controlled substance, and Alyssa White, 20, of Arroyo Grande was arrested on suspicion of child endangerment.
Travis Traynor, 25, of Corcoran was arrested for outstanding warrants.
As of Monday night, Glos and White remained in County Jail in lieu of $40,000 bail and $100,000 bail, respectively. Traynor was no longer listed as in custody.
