MONTEREY (BCN) — Two people were arrested this afternoon in Monterey when the Peninsula Regional Violence and Narcotics Team served a search warrant at the scene of an alleged butane honey oil hash lab.

When detectives from the team arrived to serve the warrant, Kelly fled through a back door and ran to a side yard, according to Bruno.

The 27-year-old jumped over fences but was tackled to the ground by a good Samaritan and taken into custody in the 500 block of David Avenue, Bruno said.

Detectives also found 21 pounds of marijuana a half-ounce of heroin, concentrated cannabis, evidence of drug sales and drug paraphernalia at the home, according to Bruno.

Kelly was arrested on suspicion of resisting arrest, possession of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance for sale, possession of marijuana for sale, possession of concentrated marijuana and manufacturing, Bruno said.

Voye was found at the home and arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to Bruno.
