Mesa police found a lab inside a Mesa home believed to be used to make THC wax and liquid, the mind-alerting part of the plant.

Mesa police report that on August 28 they arrested Dearien Andrew Campbell at his home, near Alma School and Baseline roads, on an outstanding warrant. 

Inside the home, police say they found several vials of liquid THC inside a nylon bag in a hallway closet. 

Police also located several mason jars containing THC wax -- also known as "weed wax" -- and equipment allegedly used for extracting the THC from marijuana and packaging the wax and liquid. 

A vial capping machine and $8,000 in cash were also found in the home, according to the charging documents.

A family member of Campbell also reportedly told police that Campbell had made marijuana edibles and was selling them, according to documents.

The suspect was charged with manufacturing of narcotic drugs.
