A probation search by Eureka Police Department patrol officers at a residence on the 2600 block of G Street turned up several suspicious items suspected to have been used during the manufacturing of methamphetamine, officials said Friday.

The structure was evacuated, declared unsafe to occupy until further notice and a Chico company was called in Thursday to assist with the clean up. A release said neighbors were notified.

The subject of Wednesday’s search, Glenn Ray Farmer, 35, initially denied he had manufactured any methamphetamine and said the materials were a “science experiment,” according to the release. He reportedly later admitted he had unsuccessfully attempted to make methamphetamine in the residence.

Farmer was arrested on suspicion of possession of precursor chemicals with intent to manufacture, manufacturing a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and probation violation.
