On 5-9-2013 at about 5:43 am, Hemet Police Officer Doug Klinzing found two people sleeping in a car near a park located in the 5100 block of Shade Stone Drive. During the contact, Officer Klinzing learned the male had an arrest warrant for DUI and is a military deserter.
During a search of the vehicle, Officer Klinzing found a mobile drug lab inside the trunk. Haz-Mat & Lab-Teams were called and responded quickly. The Lab Team said the chemicals were extremely dangerous and it took Haz-Mat several hours to process the scene. No evacuations were needed, however, a large section of the neighborhood was closed off to through traffic. Hemet Police Volunteers responded to ensure no vehicle or pedestrian traffic entered the scene.
