Hotel near LAX Evacuated After Reports of a Meth Lab Inside Room

– Noxious fumes from some type of drug operation forced the evacuation of an Embassy Suites hotel in El Segundo Monday, and two responding police officers had to be hospitalized.


Police were called shortly after 1:30 p.m. regarding a possible drug operation in one of the rooms at the hotel in the 1400 block of East Imperial Avenue, El Segundo police Lt. Scott Doukakis said. Around 4 p.m., two officers
walked into the room and were overcome with fumes, and were taken to a hospital, he said.

Initial reports indicated there may have been a meth lab in the room, but police said later that someone was trying to extract THC from marijuana.

The person who reserved the room was taken into custody and also taken to a hospital.
