(Follow this one if you can. George and Gina Peterson were married. Gina had a daughter, Adriean Volz, which is George's step-daughter. They divorced and let the daughter live in the 3 million dollar home. She then turned it into a meth lab in 2003. Why do wealthy people think it appropriate to let drug addled children have free reign of their homes they own? George and Lauri are more alike than we think. Remember Lauri's condo - enough said. To top it off she two small children who were taken into custody as they had been present at the drug home but not during the raid.)
LOS ANGELES -- A young woman was behind bars Thursday on suspicion of turning her parents' fancy Laguna Niguel, Calif., mansion into a meth lab.
Meth lab linked to a gang called Nazi Low Riders // Million-dollar drug operation was to benefit prison group, prosecutor says.
Three men were arrested with the woman.
Arrested Wednesday night were Adriean Volz, 22, daughter of the woman who owns the house; Damien Smith, 27, a parolee; Kevin Lattienville, 23, of San Gabriel; and Thomas Leo Zon, 34, a parolee from Azusa, Amormino said. All four were arrested on suspicion of making methamphetamine.
Hazardous materials teams descended on the roughly $3 million Mediterranean-style home at 22805 Channel View in gated Monarch Point Wednesday and seized about $1 million worth of the homemade "speed," according to Jim Amormino of the Orange County Sheriff's Department.
About 50 pounds of the crystalline stimulant, cooked up and ready to sell, was seized.
The home is owned by Volz's mother, Gina Peterson, the estranged wife of Irvine construction executive, George Peterson, the Los Angeles Times reported.
The couple are divorcing, and the mother and the stepfather had moved out, leaving the 5,000-square-foot home for the daughter to live in, the newspaper reported.
Amormino called the bust the biggest of its kind in Orange County, Calif., in a decade.
On Tuesday night, a sheriff's deputy spotted Lattienville outside the suburban "super lab" and started questioning him, Amormino said.
About that time, Smith came out and was recognized as a parolee, one in poor standing with the law for failing to check in with his probation officer, he said.
Smith ran but was caught, and that prompted deputies to find out what was going on inside.
Methamphetamine is often made with over-the-counter drugs containing ephedrine or pseudoephedrine and distilled with acids and solvents, including volatile chemicals such as red phosphorus and hydrochloric acid. Sometimes cruder solvents and corrosives are used, kerosene or lye, according to drug enforcement authorities.
The stuff sells on the streets for about $100 per gram. The effects can include paranoia and delusions.
