TANGIPAHOA, La. -- Four adults were arrested for having materials used to make meth in a home with three young children inside.
Deputies arrested 32-year-old Cameron Perry, 20-year-old Andreka Perry, 36-year-old Lee Richard Chabaud and 31-year-old Carol Morgan.
Inside the home were "precusor materials used to manufacture methamphetamine" as well as the drug itself and drug paraphernalia, said Dawn Panepinto, a spokeswoman for the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office. She added that there was a "one pot meth lab" in a garbage can just outside the home.
Two 5-year-olds and an 8-year-old were inside the home at the time of the arrest. Panepinto said all materials were "readily accessible" to the kids.
Cameron Perry and Carol Morgan admitted to taking meth minutes before their arrest.
Andreka Perry, Morgan and Chabaud each face three counts of child endangerment and one count of manufacturing methamphetamine. Cameron Perry was booked with possession of schedule II methamphetamine, manufacturing methamphetamine and three counts of child endangerment.
Department of Child and Family Services took custody of the children, who are said to be doing well.
