Meth cooking, farm style - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Meth cooking, farm style

Good morning!

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.

Never know where you'll find a meth lab these days, but CPSO reports finding one in a Moss Bluff barn. We'll tell you where they found it, and who they've arrested in the case. 

Also today, we'll take you to a class aimed at improving driver safety here in the lake area.

We'll  also explain something called "pumping parties." Women are paying to have potentially deadly substances injected into their bodies for better curves. We'll hear what doctors are now seeing in the emergency room.

Plus, are you hoping to give your home a new and improved look? Well we'll show you how a simple closet makeover could save you big money – and a shopping trip.

It's looks as though we should have a pretty nice day now that the rain is gone. Ben tells me we should have some afternoon sunshine with highs into the lower 70's. But what about tomorrow and then our weekend? I'm hearing Sunday and Monday could be pretty rocky.   Look for all the details in Ben's live, local forecast at noon. And while we're talking about the weather, the  7 Stormteam will be at the Walgreens located at the corner of Ryan and 18th Streets TODAY from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. to program NOAA Weather radios. So, if you need to pick up a radio, program one you have, or just want to meet the team, go on over there tonight.

One other note, if you've missed KPLC's Gerron Jordan's powerful stories on the homeless in our area you can watch them HERE, and he will conclude his special reports tonight at 10 p.m.

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. We hope you have a great day!

    The new Jeff Davis jail has been a project years in the making. After breaking ground nearly two years ago it's almost ready to open.  The $10 million jail in Jeff Davis Parish is close to completion.  "We're going to be going from 64 beds to almost 200 so it's two thirds larger," said Chief Deputy Chris Ivey.  The new facility has been talked about for years. The parish's current jail in Jennings was built in the 1960's, that faces constant ...More >>

    The National Hurricane Center continues to highlight an area in Gulf of Mexico for potential tropical development over the next five days. This area to watch is currently located south of the Yucatan Peninsula and strong wind shear will keep this area at a 0% chance of development over the next couple of days before increasing late-week and weekend as it pushes into the Gulf of Mexico.
