MOSS BLUFF, LA (KPLC) -

Calcasieu Sheriff's Office authorities have made two arrests in a meth lab bust in Moss Bluff, according to a news release from the department.

Authorities said on Wednesday, at approximately 9:45 p.m., deputies were dispatched to Alamitos Circle in Moss Bluff in reference to a tip of a possible methamphetamine lab in a barn behind a residence.

Authorities said when deputies arrived to the barn, they found 49-year-old Jerry L. Anderson, of Sulphur, and 25-year-old William H. Heller IV, of Moss Bluff, in the process of smoking methamphetamine.

Authorities said during a voluntary search of the barn, deputies discovered several chemicals consistent with the creation or operation of a clandestine lab. They also reportedly located an active meth lab inside the barn. 

"During further search, deputies also located methamphetamines, marijuana, several types of narcotics and drug paraphernalia inside the home," the release states.

Authorities said that a hazardous materials team was called to dismantle and clean up the active meth labs.

Anderson and Heller were booked into Calcasieu Correctional Center and both charged with creation/operation of a clandestine lab, possession of CDS II (methamphetamine) and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

Heller was also charged with possession of CDS II (vyvance), possession of CDS III (vicodin), possession of marijuana and possession of a firearm in presence of CDS. 

Bonds are reportedly pending.
