HORNBECK, LA (KPLC) -

Three Hornbeck residents are facing drug charges following an investigation by the Vernon Parish Sheriff's Office.

Sheriff Sam Craft reports that 35-year-old Bobby Brack, 31-year-old Kimberly Martin Jeane and 38-year-old Willie Erwin are accused in the case.

Authorities said Vernon Parish Narcotics Task Force detectives received information on Jan. 23 regarding the alleged operation of a clandestine methamphetamine laboratory on Shorty Poston Road in Hornbeck.

Craft said detectives executed a search warrant at the home where a lab was discovered.

Brack was charged with criminal conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, operation of a clandestine laboratory, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and criminal damage to property and theft.

Brack's bond was set at $103,000.

Jeane was charged with criminal conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Jeane's bond was set at $35,000.

Erwin was charged with criminal conspiracy to operate a clandestine laboratory, operation of a clandestine laboratory and distribution of methamphetamine. Erwin's bond was set at $105,000.

Craft said Task Force detectives had previously arrested Brack and Jeane in September on the same charges. He said both were out on bond for operation of a methamphetamine laboratory at the time of their latest arrests.
