A deputy investigating the wooded area near Jean Marie Street discovered items typically used to “cook” methamphetamine, a St. John Sheriff’s Office news release states.

As he secured the scene and waited for narcotics detectives, authorities said the two men suspected of creating the lab arrived at the site. The deputy was able to detain one of the men, identified as 38-year-old Jamie Cambre, while the other man fled on an ATV.

He was later found hiding under an abandoned house on East 15th Street, authorities said. He was identified as Christopher Trosclair, 33, of East 15th Street in Reserve.jamie-cambre-8e85b612892b1ba0

Authorities say the site bore evidence of previous meth lab activities with materials used in the process strewn about the area. Trained technicians removed the potentially volatile material from the area, the news release states.

Cambre was arrested and booked with distribution/manufacture of methamphetamine. He remains in custody in lieu of a $35,000 bond.

Trosclair was arrested and booked with distribution/manufacture of methamphetamine and resisting a deputy. He is being held on a $36,500 bond and a probation/parole violation.
