When deputies arrived, they found a clandestine drug lab that was being used to make Dimethyltryptamine, a hallucinogenic drug more widely known as DMT, authorities said.

"The manufacturing process requires the extraction of chemicals from root bark through the use of highly toxic and flammable chemicals in an extraction vessel over an open flame," the Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

Hotel guests who were staying in rooms near the lab were relocated while authorities investigated. Santa Barbara County firefighters and a Los Angeles County drug task force assisted in dismantling the lab.

Authorities identified Aaron Gorzeman of Oxnard, who worked at the hotel, as a suspect during the investigation, but it is not clear how they linked him to the lab. They executed a search warrant on his home and his car, where authorities said they found additional evidence of drug manufacturing late Tuesday.
