HEBER CITY, Utah – Officials with the Heber City Police Department said four people were arrested on various charges after a clandestine lab was discovered inside a home.

Members of the Wasatch Back Major Crimes Task Force received information that there was a possible lab inside the Wasatch County home, and they proceeded to perform a “knock and talk” that led to a search warrant of the residence Friday.

During the search, police reached out to the Drug Enforcement Administration “due to the large scale of the lab and the chemicals found.”

DEA agents responded to the residence and helped decontaminate and disassemble the lab.

“Officers took necessary precautions to ensure that the citizens of Heber were safe and not in danger,” authorities said in a statement.
