PORT ALLEN, LA (WAFB) - After a concerned citizen started smelling a chemical odor in the area, they called Port Allen police to investigate 1176 Avenue C.
 
Officer Haley Stafford said she went out to the home and described the smell as smoky and like "rotten eggs."
 
Inside, Stafford found everything needed for a meth lab including Coleman fuel, red devil lye, coffee filters, special tubes to use to gas the meth bottles, lithium stripes from a battery used to make meth and empty boxes of Sudafed.

Port Allen Police Chief Esdron Brown said the group had just moved to Port Allen.

"These residents moved from Livingston and been here only two, three months. We were on it before it had some time to become something real big, before people started getting hooked on that kind of drug and there were more robberies, more stealing and more burglaries occurring,"
said Chief Brown.
 
Three people were arrested in total.

Carla Angel was arrested on an outstanding theft warrant issued by the Denham Springs Marshal's Office. Tonya Coon was arrested for an outstanding bench warrant for driving under suspension and two counts of resisting an officer.  
 
James Angel was arrested and charged with creation or operation of a clandestine laboratory, possession of schedule 2 narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia. Chief Brown said James Angel took responsibility for the meth lab.
