CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

The following is a Press Release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office:

On March 8, a Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputy was dispatched to an abandoned mobile home on Ravia Road in Sulphur in reference to a report of a burglary.  

Upon entering the mobile home to check for possible suspects, the deputy detected a strong odor of chemicals coming from the back bedroom.  Once inside the master bedroom, the deputy discovered a clandestine lab inside the closet that had malfunctioned and was emitting chemicals. 

Detectives with the Combined Anti-Drug Task Force (C.A.T. Team) arrived and discovered two active meth labs inside the mobile home.  Haz-Mat was called to dismantle and clean up the active meth labs.

After further investigation, detectives located Wesley J. Guidry, Jr., 21, at a Lake Charles motel and arrested him in connection with the meth lab on Ravia Road.  He booked into Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with creation/operation of a clandestine lab.

Judge David Ritchie set his bond at $100,000.
