Search Warrant Reveals Underground Drug Lab At Granada Hills Home

GRANADA HILLS (CNS) - A search warrant served at a Granada Hills home revealed an underground bunker, approximately 12 feet deep, that housed a drug lab, authorities said Thursday.

A search of the house and lab on Wednesday turned up eight handguns, two shotguns, four rifles and approximately eight pounds of methamphetamine, 3.6 pounds of cannabis, eight liters of gamma hydroxy butyrate -- liquid ecstasy, one ounce of heroin, 2.1 ounces of fentanyl, 25 DMT (N- dimethyltryptamine) pills, 1.8 grams of alprazolam and 21 strips of suboxone, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The search warrant was triggered by a November anonymous tip to narcotics officers of a possible illegal marijuana cultivation operation in the 16500 block of Hiawatha Street.

Officers investigated and contacted Casey Linder, a resident at a home on Hiawatha Street.

``Officers believed that narcotics manufacturing was occurring at the residence," according to police. ``A search warrant was obtained for the residence which revealed a Psilocybin (hallucinogenic mushrooms) grow in a backyard shed."

Inside the backyard shed was an access point to the underground bunker, approximately 12 feet underground, police said.

Linder was arrested on suspicion of manufacture controlled substance and was booked at the Van Nuys Jail. His bail was set at $75,000.

LAPD Devonshire station narcotics detectives urged anyone with any information regarding the operation to call them at 818-832-1131, email at or call the Devonshire Patrol Division watch commander at 818- 832-0633.
