Man Arrested for Drug Possession Following Explosion

Posted: Updated:

A man is facing felony drug charges following an explosion that rocked his home early Friday morning.

Reno police say fire crews were called to an apartment on Sinclair St. in Reno, just after 2:00 a.m. on the report of an explosion.

They say the lone resident, 26-year-old Jason Fisher, had been making marijuana hash oil inside the apartment.

Police say the process used to create the oil uses a flammable and volatile substance that ignited the blast, which was powerful enough to separate the walls of the apartment's kitchen.

RPD quickly obtained a search warrant and found felony amounts of marijuana inside.

Fisher faces felony drug possession and trafficking charges.
