Carlsbad hash-oil processor processed in Vista

But he came from Arizona…where he’s got a record

A Carlsbad man was arrested on April 22 after police found ten empty butane cans in the trash container from his home.

Authorities had gotten a tip that Daniel Clark Steadman, 32, was cooking hashish oil in a home at 3700 Azimuth Place in Carlsbad.

Experts say that using flammable solvents to extract the potent concentrate from marijuana is “extremely dangerous” because fumes can concentrate in enclosed rooms and then accidentally ignite.

Local police and Drug Enforcement Agency personnel obtained a search warrant to enter the home this week.

On Tuesday, officers collected marijuana, a ledger book, a scale, a Mastercool compressor, a ProVac vacuum chamber, a Rival hot plate, glass pipes and Pyrex dish, hash oil extract, and hash powder.

Steadman reportedly moved to California from Gilbert, Arizona, in January of this year. He had worked for a company called Total Holistic Care of Mesa, Arizona (THC of AZ) as a vendor and deliveryman, according to police.

Police say Steadman was arrested in Scottsdale for drug possession in 2001; that charge was dismissed. Last summer he was arrested in Gilbert on suspicion of possessing marijuana for sale.

Steadman was held in the Vista jail in lieu of $100,000 bail until his arraignment in San Diego’s North County Superior courthouse on April 24.

Guess he doesn't have any skill but drugs.

April 25, 2014

His previous arrest was thirteen years ago. Maybe he's very skillful at managing to live in the drug trade without getting caught. Did his luck run out?

April 25, 2014

I don't care if he does drugs, but running an hazardous lab in a residential neighborhood should earn him some real time in the pokey.

April 25, 2014

"Authorities had gotten a tip" ... tsk, tsk. Probably means that Mr. Steadman was a bit too greedy; didn't pay one of the people who were helping him, or didn't pay them enough. Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered.

Or it may have been the homeowner, who drove by one day and smelled his pungent home cooking!
