PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Acting on a tip, Marion County Deputies and the Department of Human Services went to a home near Aurora Thursday to check on the welfare of a 2-year-old child.

Investigators say they found Derick Scott, 24, inside the residence extracting marijuana oil. His 2-year-old was there with him.

The process of extracting marijuana oil, or making hash oil, can be dangerous, even deadly.

Investigators say when they entered the home they were overwhelmed by a chemical smell.

The child was taken into protective custody and evaluated at a hospital. Scott was taken to jail and charged with three misdemeanor crimes.

He will be in court January 11.
