KENTWOOD, LA (WAFB) - A man and woman were arrested after narcotics agents found a meth lab and drugs inside the home where they and two children lived, according to authorities.
The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office reported Adam Thibodeaux, 32, and Sonya Boney, 27, both of Kentwood, were arrested Monday on the following charges:
Operation/creation of a clandestine lab
Possession of methamphetamine
Possession of a firearm while in possession of CDS
Possession of drug paraphernalia
Sheriff Daniel Edwards said the investigation started when sheriff’s deputies went to the home to assist the Department of Child and Family Services (DCFS) with finding Thibodeaux and Boney. According to reports, the pair was at the home and permission was given to search inside.
Deputies reported immediately smelling a strong chemical odor matching the one caused when meth is made. They added they also saw prescription medications on the counter that didn’t have any labels on them. TPSO stated the narcotics unit was then called in to further investigate.
Reports indicate the detectives confirmed the presence of meth in the home and found materials used to make it. Investigators said they discovered processed meth, a bag of unknown prescription pills and a loaded gun.
The two children were released to a relative.
The investigation is ongoing.
