KENTWOOD, LA (WAFB) -

A juvenile was placed in the custody of a family member after deputies with the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office found her in a pickup truck with suspected methamphetamines.

On Friday, Nov. 2, deputies were called to a house in Kentwood, LA for a disturbance among 49-year-old Samuel Avery and two other people. When they arrived, they did not find Avery or the other two, but they did come across materials typically used for the manufacturing of meth in a white bucket. 

Reports say as deputies walked around the house to look for Avery, they could smell a strong odor of lighter fluid coming from an open window of the house. 

Avery was not home, but they had a tip on where he may have gone.

When deputies arrived at the location, they saw Avery in a green Ford F-150 which was also occupied by a male subject and a young girl. 

All three were asked to get out of the truck. While helping the young girl out of the truck, deputies could see in plain view plastic bottles containing suspected methamphetamine.

Avery was then taken into custody and charged with manufacturing of CDS II, possession with the intent to distribute CDS II, simple battery and cruelty to a juvenile.

The child was safely placed in the custody of a family member.
