Authorities Say South Coast Drug Lab Was On Same Site As Preschool

Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s deputies say a raid discovered an illegal drug lab on the same site as a preschool on the South Coast. Officers say evidence led them to a home on the 100 block of Nogal Drive in Santa Barbara.

They say they discovered signs of drug manufacturing and sales. Investigators say the operation was just feet away from a decade old pre-school which serves children between the ages of two and five.

The school was closed for the holidays at the time of the raid Monday. Three people were arrested in connection with the raid.
