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

Lake Charles, LA – On April 27, detectives with the Combined Anti-Drug Task Force (C.A.T. Team) went to a residence on Sam Houston Jones Parkway in Moss Bluff after receiving a narcotic complaint regarding a possible Methamphetamine Lab.  

Detectives spoke to the residents Justin W. Mullinax, and Christie D. Murray, both 28, and asked for permission to search the camper after they observed numerous items used to manufacture Methamphetamine inside.

Detectives secured the scene and obtained a search warrant after Mullinax and Murray refused permission for the search.

After obtaining the search warrant, detectives conducted a search and found numerous precursors and paraphernalia used to manufacture Methamphetamine.  Detectives also located approximately 3 to 4 grams of finished Methamphetamine product.

Mullinax and Murray were both 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.
