Metro Narcotics agents arrested a man Monday in connection with a suspected methamphetamine lab found April 4 in the 1500 block of Bailey Street in West Monroe.

At that time, agents found the materials necessary to make meth in a trailer at the residence. According to reports, a witness said Tommy Davis, 43, of 1520 Bailey, had made meth that day.

At the location, a prescription bottle with Davis’ name on it was reportedly found containing pseudoephedrine tablets which are used to make meth.

Ouachita Parish deputies stopped and arrested Davis on Monday on outstanding burglary warrants. According to deputies, a search of Davis’ vehicle revealed a metal box containing approximately 2.5 grams of meth, small plastic bags and digital scales. The box was found on the driver’s side floorboard.
