Two people were arrested Wednesday afternoon in San Luis Obispo on suspicion of manufacturing the drug ecstasy.
Marcus Anthony Frazier, 22, of Los Osos, and Melissa Anne Wilson, 25, of San Luis Obispo, were arrested at 5:15 p.m. after a vehicle was stopped during surveillance of a suspected drug dealer and ecstasy tablets were found in the car, according to the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office.
Police then conducted a search of Wilson’s residence in the 1700 block of Cordova Drive in San Luis Obispo where a drug manufacturing lab was found along with more ecstasy tablets.
Because chemicals were present, detectives used the narcotics hazardous materials trailer to process the scene and remove the evidence. Both suspects were charged with drug possession and manufacturing and were booked into the county jail under $500,000 bail, each.
