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.
