Police on Sunday announced the arrest of a man who detectives say was behind a sophisticated narcotics lab in a Northwest Miami-Dade home.

Raul Puig, 29, was in jail Sunday facing charges including armed trafficking of ecstasy, possession of ecstasy, methamphetamine and LSD, and manufacturing with intent to deliver.

He was being held with no bond.

On Saturday, Miami-Dade police uncovered the chemical lab — which churned lucrative street drugs including LSD and Molly —while serving eviction papers at the home at 8028 NW 200th St.

The clandestine lab was a “rare find,” police said Saturday.
