  • Following several recent residential explosions involving cannabis butane extraction labs, the Edmonton Police Service is encouraging the public to keep a watchful eye over their neighbourhoods.

    Cannabis labs involve extracting THC from cannabis to illegally produce cannabis oil or ‘shatter’, a concentrated form of THC.

    “These explosions can be deadly, not only for the individuals living in the residence being used as a cannabis extraction lab, but also for those neighbours living nearby,” says EPS Sgt. Guy Pilon, of the Clan Lab Response team.

    “Criminals are using highly explosive materials including butane and propane. “The vapor from just one regular sized can of butane has the capacity to destroy a 1,450 square foot home. These individuals are putting law-abiding citizens at risk.”

    “We want citizens to be mindful and others such as food delivery drivers and the landlords of rental properties to ensure they are acting responsibly and checking on their properties regularly to ensure they aren’t be used by criminals who only care about making money, not about the neighbours’ safety.”

    Investigators are reminding citizens to be vigilant, and to contact EPS if they see suspicious behaviour in their neighbourhood. Such behaviours include:

    -Empty butane canisters being put out for weekly garbage pickup

    -Equipment set up in residences or garages including lengthy stainless steel extraction tubes, pressurized containers connected together with wiring

    -New venting which has been cut into the side of the residence

    If you suspect you may have a cannabis extraction lab in your community. is asked to contact police at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.p3tips.com/250.
