Drug raid leads to accusations of meth manufacturing

Authorities report that a six-month investigation in Natchitoches, La., has led to the arrest of two individuals. Both of these people have been accused of multiple drug charges. According to reports, they were involved in the manufacturing of methamphetamine. Allegations were not made until after a raid was conducted on the home of one of the individuals - a 38-year-old man from Robeline, La.

The Natchitoches Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Trask Force said that three search warrants were executed by the Natchitoches SWAT team at the property belonging to the 38-year-old man. Authorities allegedly recovered an active meth lab during the raid, along with several other illicit materials.

According to reports, the 38-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman from Natchitoches were operating a meth lab at the property where the raid was conducted. The method being used was the "one pot" approach, according to officials with the Natchitoches Fire Department's Haz-Mat Unit and Clandestine Laboratory Technicians that surveyed the property. Investigators searching the home supposedly uncovered other products used in the making of meth as well as the drug itself. In addition, authorities reported the discovery of stolen goods, three firearms, suspected marijuana and various prescription medications.

Both individuals remain in custody and are currently being held at the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center. They have been issued bonds valued at $110,000 each.

Each of them has been charged with the following crimes: possession of drug paraphernalia; possession of legend drug, cyclobenzaprine and diazepam; possession of a Schedule IV drug, clonazepam; possession of a Schedule II drug, hydrocodone; possession of a Schedule II drug, methamphetamine; manufacturing of a Schedule II drug, methamphetamine; possession of a Schedule I drug, marijuana; and creating or operating a clandestine laboratory. The 38-year-old man was also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Investigators may file more charges in the future.
