Two brothers were arrested Wednesday afternoon on suspicion of operating a methamphetamine lab out of a Pleasanton home, police said.
Officers went to the home in the 800 block of East Angela Street at about 1:15 p.m. to serve an arrest warrant for 40-year-old Matthew Donald Magoon and contacted both him and his brother, 50-year-old Robert Willard Magoon, police said.
During the investigation, officers allegedly recovered evidence of a clandestine drug lab used to make methamphetamine, according to police. Investigators found glassware, beakers, propane tanks, tubing, acetone, salts, powders, smoking devices, precursor for making methamphetamine, a digital scale and packaging, police reported.
Department of Justice Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement agents also responded to the home to investigate and dismantle the lab, police said. Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department hazardous material crews went to the home as a precaution.
Police said Matthew Magoon was arrested for a felony warrant for sales and transportation of dangerous drugs and Robert Magoon was arrested for possession for sales of methamphetamine and manufacturing methamphetamine. The brothers were booked into the Santa Rita Jail.
