ELM GROVE — A search of a mobile home Thursday evening found an illegal methamphetamine lab — along with an elderly couple who have Alzheimer’s and didn’t know their son was making drugs there, Bossier Parish sheriff’s deputies said.
Deputies said Bienville Parish authorities had tipped them off to the drug lab at the mobile home on Louisiana Highway 154 near Elm Grove. Narcotics agents said they went to the mobile home and saw drugs sitting a dresser.
A search of the residence found 2-liter bottles containing ingredients to make meth using the “shake and bake” method, agents said.
Arrested were Scott Lee Young, 53, of Highway 154 and David Lester Moudy, 55, of Elm Grove. They were booked on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, drug possession and cruelty to the infirm.
The cruelty to the infirm charge involves Young’s 88- and 90-year-old parents, who have Alzheimer’s disease and lived in the mobile home, agents said. They didn’t know drugs were being made in a bedroom, agents said.
