MOSS BLUFF, LA (KPLC) -
Two people were arrested in a meth lab bust in Moss Bluff on Thursday.
Melanie M. Barber, 40, and Austin P. Sonnier, 23, are each facing 33 charges of creation/operation of a clandestine lab and possession of CDS Schedule II (methamphetamine).
Bonds are pending for each.
According to a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office, at around 1 p.m. Thursday, deputies were dispatched to 584 Rollins Road in Moss Bluff in an attempt to locate Barber, who was reportedly wanted on an active warrant for possession with intent to distribute CDS schedule IV and creation/operation of a clandestine lab.
Authorities said upon arrival, deputies spotted a disassembled meth lab outside of the residence.
Authorities said Barber and Sonnier were inside a camper trailer in the yard and refused to open the door.
"They were said to be cooking and using methamphetamine inside the trailer. Due to Barber and Sonnier refusing to comply with deputies, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Anti-Crime and Tactics (ACT) Team was dispatched and arrested Barber and Sonnier without incident," authorities said in a release.
Authorities said 33 small meth labs, commonly referred to as "shake and bakes," and several chemicals consistent with the creation or operation of a clandestine lab, were found in the trailer.
Ward 1 Fire Department, along with the Lake Charles Fire Department and a State Police hazardous materials team, responded.
