SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) - A Sulphur couple was arrested on Tuesday after detectives searched their home and found marijuana and items used to manufacture meth.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office detectives responded to a home on Alice Street in Sulphur on Tuesday in regard to possibly locating stolen items.

The resident of the home, 39-year-old Rhonda Jett, gave detectives permission to search the home. During their search, detectives found a plastic tote containing items that could be used in a meth lab.

Combined Anti-Drug detectives were called to the scene where they found the items were used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

While there, detectives also located a small baggie of marijuana and hypodermic needles in the bedroom.

Also at the home was 37-year-old Shawn Miller of Sulphur. Officials say he admitted to using the needles to inject methamphetamine.

Both Jett and Miller were arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and were charged with the creation/operation of a clandestine lab and possession of marijuana.

No bond has been set as of the writing of this article.
