Three suspects who allegedly attempted to purchase pseudophedrine 323 times in Louisiana during the past 12 months were arrested Monday when deputies discovered a meth lab at a residence on Shaw Road, authorities said Tuesday.
According to a press release from Hancock County Narcotics Commander Jeremy Skinner, deputies on Monday went to the residence of Pamela Ladner, 56, to attempt to serve an outstanding warrant.
Deputies located Ladner at the back of her property on Shaw Road in Kiln and also discovered what appeared to be an inactive meth lab and precursors being burned, Skinner said.
During Ladner's arrest, two other individuals, David Hudson, 55, and Matthew Hudson, 25, both of Kiln, pulled up at the residence, Skinner said.
The Hudsons were questioned and deputies located meth, scales, baggies, and syringes, "on their person or in their vehicle," Skinner said.
Later, deputies searched Ladner and the Hudson's names on a data base and discovered that the three suspects purchased or attempted to purchase pseudophedrine 323 times in Louisiana in the past 12 months, Skinner said.
All three were arrested at the scene and transported to the Hancock County Jail.
Ladner was charged with manufacturing a controlled substance and generation of hazardous waste.
The Hudsons were both charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and generation of hazardous waste.
