Three arrested after meth lab bust in Lake Charles

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office and the Combined Anti-Drug Task Force responded to a motel on Highway 90 East in Lake Charles and busted a meth cooking lab early Monday morning.

Authorities responded to a complaint of a possible meth lab around 5:00 a.m. on Monday, January 4.

When deputies arrived on the scene, there was a strong odor of ammonia. Troopers investigated the scene and it was determined that there were many chemicals present in the room that were consistent with creating meth, and eventually learned meth was cooked in the room prior to their arrival.

30-year old James Morris and 24-year old Patrick Bales - both from Lake Charles - and 22-year old Heather Singleton from Moss Bluff were arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center.

All three were charged with creation or operation of a clandestine lab.

Judge Wilford Carter set Morris and Bales' bonds at $3,000 each - Singleton's was set at $2,000.
