BAYOU L’OURSE — Assumption Parish sheriff’s narcotics agents arrested a Bayou L’Ourse man Tuesday night after a crystal meth lab was found in his home, Sheriff Mike Waguespack said.
Chadwick Landry, 43, of 221 Aristile Road in the town of Bayou L’Ourse, was booked into the Assumption Parish Detention Center in Napoleonville Tuesday on a count of creating a clandestine laboratory and possession of drug paraphernalia, Waguespack said in a news release.
Narcotics agents with a search warrant found a number of items throughout the house used in the making of crystal methamphetamine in what’s called the “shake-in-bake” method, according to the Sheriff’s Office report.
The method is used to make smaller batches faster.
Agents also found materials used for packaging the drug for sale. Many of the items were hidden inside the house’s Sheetrock walls and attic, the report said.
Additional charges and arrests may follow, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
