MONTEGUT, La. – Authorities arrested three people operating a meth lab inside their house after receiving an anonymous report Thursday evening, authorities said.
The unidentified source called the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office around 7:30 p.m. to report that people at a South Louisiana Avenue residence were making meth inside.
Deputies confirmed the report through an investigation and tore down the make-shift lab after arresting the trio, Sheriff Jerry Larpenter said.
Thirty-eight-year-old Rohnda Lewis of Montegut, 35-year-old Thelma Griffin of Chauvin and 38-year-old Bobby Nelton Jr. of Bourg were charged with one count of creation or operation of a secret laboratory for the unlawful manufacture of a class schedule drug, authorities said.
Deputies placed the group in the parish’ Criminal Justice Complex on a $50,000 bond.
