LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Three people were arrested early Wednesday morning after authorities were called to a Moss Bluff residence where they discovered a meth lab.
Early Wednesday morning, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office was called to a residence on Esther Drive in Moss Bluff in regard to a noise that sounded like an explosion.
Detectives arrived and they say they discovered 26-year-old Rachel A. Graham, 44-year-old John E. Dunn and 18-year-old Steven S. Willis were in the process of manufacturing methamphetamine when an unexpected chemical reaction occurred. They reportedly threw the chemicals out of the residence before they exploded, causing a fire.
All three were arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with creation/operation of a clandestine lab. Authorities add that back in November 2010, detectives arrested Graham, Dunn and Willis after discovering a meth lab at the same residence.
The investigation continues, and authorities say more arrests are possible. Bond has not been set as of 11 a.m. Wednesday.
