The following is a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

Lake Charles, LA – On January 16, around 11:45 p.m. Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies received a complaint of loud music at 3835 Heard Rd. in Lake Charles.  When deputies arrived at the house they obtained consent to search the house.  The search revealed a small amount of methamphetamine, a syringe, a Soma pill, and numerous precursors commonly used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine.  Deputies also searched a shop behind the house where they found one homemade hydrogen gas generator used during the process of manufacturing methamphetamine.

Deputies contacted a detective with the Combined Anti-Drug Task Force (C.A.T. Team). When he arrived and looked at the evidence it was determined to be utilized for the manufacturing of methamphetamine.  The detective contacted the Drug Enforcement Agent to make arrangements to have the hazardous material crew en route to clean up the hazardous waste.

The clean-up crew arrived from Gonzales in the early morning hours of January 17 and began recovering the waste.  While waiting for the clean up to be completed, daylight began to break and the detective and deputy were able to notice a tote bag positioned between a second shop and a wooden fence.  The detective checked the contents of the bag and discovered a "one pot cook" methamphetamine lab contained in a large plastic drink container, a bottle of muriatic acid, and a plastic funnel.  The methamphetamine lab was in the final stage of "cooking."

The homeowner, Darrell K. Lognion, 51; Pamala S. Ball, 27, who lives with Lognion; and Todd A. Booth, 28, 3824 Janet Ln., Lake Charles, were arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, and creation/operation of a clandestine lab.  Ball was also charged with possession of Soma.

In May 2009, Lognion was arrested and charged with schedule II possession of a CDS, possession of a CDS/legend drug, schedule IV possession of a CDS, possession of marijuana 1st offense, and creation/operation of a clandestine lab.  Ball was also arrested and charged with creation/operation of a clandestine lab in May 2009.

Judge Clayton Davis set Ball and Booth's bond at $9,000 each and Lognion's at $16,000.
