EUGENE, OR -- A Redmond man faces federal charges stemming from a December explosion at a Butane Honey Oil (BHO) lab. William Wild was arraigned this week, following a Federal Grand Jury indictment on charges of Endangering Human Life and Manufacturing Hash Oil.


Wild and his adult daughter suffered burns in the explosion at his Southwest Redmond home on December 12, 2016 (pictured). They were flown to OHSU in Portland for treatment.


Redmond police say honey oil - or hash oil - is made with highly flammable materials, like Butane, to refine and concentrate the THC in marijuana. Oregon has seen a dramatic increase in the number of explosions of these labs in recent years.
