KENNER, LA (WVUE) -

Kenner Police arrested a woman Thursday for allegedly making methamphetamine in a Williams Boulevard hotel room.

Lori Lesaicherre, 51, was booked with operating a clandestine lab to manufacture a controlled dangerous substance.

At 11:47 p.m., police received a tip that Lesaicherre was making meth at the Contempra Inn. When officers arrived, they found that Lesaicherre was the registered guest. Police said when she answered the door, they could smell ammonia in her room, which is usually associated with making methamphetamine.

Inside the room officers found a metal copper cutter, plastic tubing, a plastic lighter fluid bottle containing a white powdery substance and a pink liquid in a clear plastic bag, according to a KPD news release. Officers also found several packs of cold compress, several packets of pseudoephedrine caplets, two bottles of camping fuel and several opened lithium batteries in a bag in a dumpster close to the hotel room. Also in the bag was a paper prescription with Lesaicherre's name on it.

All items located are precursors or equipment to manufacture methamphetamine, police said.

Investigators said Lesaicherre confessed to making meth and disposing of the precursors in the dumpster.

Jefferson Parish Hazmat responded to the scene and disposed of the items.

Lesaicherre remains in custody, and no bond has been set.

Kenner Police Chief Michael Glaser is asking anyone with information about Lesaicherre to call the Narcotics Investigation Division at (504) 712-2240 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
