Youths cause explosion making cannabis oil

The Coombs-Hilliers Volunteer Fire Department and Oceanside RCMP were dispatched to a trailer court on Shawn Road in Coombs after reports of an explosion on Thursday evening last week [April 17].

RCMP found two youths with minor burns outside a trailer. The front window of the trailer

and its surrounding frame had been blown out by an apparent explosion.

The youths told police they had been using butane to make cannabis oil.

"Everyone needs to be aware of just how dangerous this process is," RCMP Cpl. Jesse Foreman said in a news release.

Drug related charges are being considered by the Oceanside RCMP.
