Darron Price was arrested on Feb. 10 in connection with the explosion last week. The explosion caused a three-alarm fire that damaged three homes on the 1700 block of 22nd Avenue.
During the investigation, police said they recovered materials consistent with drug manufacturing as well as acetone and other highly flammable solvents in the home. Investigators said they also found Rita Price’s remains amid the rubble.
Price’s brother, Sean Price, spoke to KRON4 about his brother’s arrest. He said Darron has more than 30 years of experience in manufacturing weed products, and he would not have risked doing it at home.
