Louisiana State Police contacted the St. Helena Sheriff's Office informing them that a warrant was being executed from East Baton Rouge on a hit and run charge that the suspect, Brian Allen, had engaged in.
John Achord, the owner of the home, answered the door. Louisiana State Police Trooper asked if Allen was home.
According to Achord, Allen was in his bedroom and told the trooper he could come in to see him.
The bedroom door was closed, and as the Trooper entered into the bedroom he spotted a clear 20 ounce coke bottle with a substance boiling in it, which the Trooper felt was consistent with the operation of a Clandestine Lab to produce methamphetamines, which is commonly known on the streets as Meth.
The Trooper immediately brought John Achord, wm, 40, Brian Allen, wm, 31 and Kelli L. Anderson, wf, 33, outside of the residence for their protection, and called the Haz-Mat unit as well as the St. Helena Sheriff's Drug Interdiction Team.
Anderson had two small children, age 4 and age 2 in the home as well.
As the St. Helena Parish Drug Interdiction Team arrived Haz-Mat removed the chemicals from the home and the Drug Interdiction team began to investigate.
As they searched the room they found several items that were used in the manufacturing of meth. A clear plastic baggie was also discovered containing a green leaf-like substance, suspected to be marijuana.
In addition there were small amounts of meth and a 22 Magnum Rifle that was loaded on the bed that Allen was laying in.
All three persons were arrested, cuffed, read their rights and were taken to the St. Helena Parish Jail, and were booked accordingly.
