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

On March 9, at approximately 8:30 a.m., Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies responded in reference to shots fired inside a mobile home on the 5000 block of Highway 14 East in Iowa.

When deputies arrived and spoke with the homeowner, Joleen J. Treadway, 41, they immediately detected a strong odor of chemicals coming from inside the mobile home.  Once inside, deputies discovered several chemicals that were consistent with creation or operation of a clandestine lab.

Detectives with the Combined Anti-Drug Task Force (C.A.T. Team) arrived and determined Treadway was in the process of manufacturing methamphetamine.  Haz-Mat was called to dismantle and clean up the active meth lab.

Treadway was arrested and booked into Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with creation/operation of a clandestine lab; possession with intent of CDS II (meth); and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

Judge David Ritchie set her bond at $102,500.

CPSO Deputy Scott Hebert was the arresting deputy.
