Reserve, La. - A Reserve man is behind bars after police in St. John Parish shut down a suspected meth lab.
St. John Parish Sheriff Mike Tregre says around 11:30am Tuesday, narcotics detectives responded to the 200 block of Central Avenue in Reserve for a report of illegal drug activity at an old warehouse.
Once on scene, detectives made contact with 43-year-old Adam Trosclair Jr.
While talking with Trosclair, detectives saw several items used in making methamphetamine and an active methamphetamine cook in progress. Because of potential hazards associated with active labs, a hazardous waste disposal company was called to neutralize and disassemble the lab.
Trosclair was arrested and booked with possession of drug paraphernalia, distribute/manufacture schedule II CDS, and create/operate a clandestine laboratory.
He remains in custody in lieu of a $101,500 bond.
