3 charged in hash oil explosion that damaged warehouse in Denver
DENVER — The Denver District Attorney has decided to charge three people with making hash oil that caused an explosion that damaged a warehouse earlier this year.
Matthew Ackerman, 24, Danielle Cordova, 20, and Paul Mannaioni, 24, all face charges of processing or manufacturing marijuana concentrate, said spokeswoman Lynn Kimbrough.
The three were allegedly trying to make hash oil at a warehouse on Lipan Street on April 23. The process caused an explosion that damaged part of the building and injured all three.
Hash oil explosions have increased in the metro area since Colorado approved recreational marijuana use.
