BAYOU VISTA, LA (WAFB) -

An investigation into a welfare concern complaint resulted in an arrest after three meth labs were found in the home, according to authorities.

The St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office reported Tommy McNally, 46, of Bayou Vista, was arrested Friday evening.

Deputies said the investigator looking into the complaint found McNally there and a background check revealed an arrest warrant for him.

They added the deputy then saw what looked like a meth lab while arresting McNally and contacted narcotics detectives.

SMPSO said the detectives found three meth labs, several items used to make meth and drug paraphernalia inside the home, which is across the street from a school.

McNally was booked on charges of operation of a clandestine laboratory within 1,000 feet of school property, manufacturing Schedule II (methamphetamine), possession of drug paraphernalia and warrant for theft of utility services and criminal damage to property. No bond was set.

Investigators said the arrest warrant stemmed from McNally allegedly cutting and damaging padlocks to turn his water back on after it was shut off because the bill had not been paid.
