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

Lake Charles – On July 7, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched to 3360 Sancess Road in Lake Charles in reference to an anonymous tip of a possible methamphetamine lab at this residence with children inside. 

Upon arrival, deputies received consent to search the residence and located a large amount of raw cooked methamphetamine, along with several smoking pipes, individual baggies and scales, along with several chemicals inside the home that were consistent with creation or operation of a clandestine lab.  Haz-Mat was called to dismantle and clean up the meth lab. 

Deputies discovered a nine-year-old boy inside the home, who was removed and placed with family members.

John A. Constance, Marcia A. Davenport, Randal C. Ardoin and Stuart A. Thibodeaux - all of Lake Charles - were arrested and charged with creation/operation of a clandestine lab; prohibited acts schedule II; possession of drug paraphernalia; and illegal use of CDS in the presence of a minor.

CPSO Cpl. Scott Helms was the arresting deputy in this case with the assistance of Cpl. Bazinet, Deputy Trahan, Sr. Cpl. Dupuie, Cpl. Boudreaux, Deputy Lavergne, and Deputy Peshoff.

    Less humid Wednesday!Less humid Wednesday!

    A cold front will move through Southwest Louisiana late Tuesday or early Wednesday.  This will bring noticeably drier air back to our area and that means we get a break from the humidity!  But it will also bring scattered showers and thunderstorms tonight.  The timing looks to be between 8 p.m. and 2 a.m. Wednesday.  The risk of severe weather is very low, but like last night, it is not zero!

The student pick-up/drop-off area is needed to improve traffic congestion on Nelson Road. However, Calcasieu Parish taxpayers are on the hook for an additional $33,153 because of dirt issues.
