WOODLAND HILLS — Narcotics investigators uncovered a suspected ecstasy lab at a home in the 20700 block of Martha Street belonging to an Amgen scientist, the Los Angeles Police Department reported today. On Thursday afternoon, agents with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration investigated the home on the quiet, residential street around 2 p.m. and called in LAPD narcotics detectives with the major crimes division. They found an inactive production operation, said Officer Kate Lopez, with chemicals and glassware associated with ecstasy. They did not find completed drugs, but continue to investigate. Officers arrested 37-year-old Stefan Schmiedberg, who works at Thousand Oaks-based biotech giant Amgen Inc. on suspicion of conspiracy to manufacture drugs.
