 Lake Charles – On June 7, at approximately 11:45 a.m., Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched to 101 Toussaint Road, Lot # 98, in Lake Charles, after receiving a complaint concerning the welfare of children in the home.

Upon arrival, deputies detected a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the mobile home.  Once inside, received consent to search and located two baggies containing methamphetamine, several cigars containing a green-leafy substance, a postal digital shipping scale, and several chemicals inside the mobile home that were consistent with creation or operation of a clandestine lab.  Haz-Mat was called to dismantle and clean up the meth lab.
