VIDEO: 5 LAPD Officers Hospitalized After Investigating Drug Lab
Officials were investigating a psychedelic drug lab Monday that caused six people, including five LAPD officers, to fall ill and be transported to a hospital after breathing fumes.
A man was heard yelling Sunday night and officers were able to locate him by following his screams, Detective Keith Honore with L.A. Impact told KTLA-TV. The officers are part of the Los Angeles Interagency Metropolitan Police Apprehension Crime Task Force.
After multiple attempts to verbally contact the man, the Los Angeles Police Department officers entered the unlocked home and discovered mason jars, meth and psilocybin “magic” mushrooms, a psychedelic drug. They then saw a naked, incoherent man exit a bathroom, Honore said.
Officers detained the man and quickly exited the home when they began to feel light-headed, Honore said.
The officers were treated and released from the hospital.
