Narcotics detectives sent to the scene found several bottles of an unknown liquid and a white powder in the apartment. They also found chemicals commonly used to make drugs, according to the sheriff’s office.

The man who was arrested, Logan Lebaroff, was taken into custody when he returned to the apartment.

Lebaroff reportedly told investigators he was making a hallucinogen called DMT, not meth.

Dimethyltryptamine is a hallucinogen that can be abused as a psychedelic drug, according to the sheriff’s office.

Ohio BCI agents removed the materials being used to make DMT and deemed the area safe.

Samples of what was taken from the apartment will be sent to a lab for confirmation.
