THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - The Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office says it's dealing with an increase in methamphetamine production in the parish.
Sheriff's Office spokesman Brennan Matherne tells The Daily Comet that the number of labs shut down has increased since last year. Exact figures were not available.
The office recently shut down two alleged meth labs within a week. One recent arrest involved four members of a Lockport family - a 53-year-old man and his three adult children. A search of the House on Monday turned up meth packaged for sale as well as marijuana.
