[ORIGINAL STORY, March 7, 2014] The Bossier Sheriff's Office has investigated a meth lab found in the Legacy subdivision and made one arrest.
Lt. Bill Davis told KEEL News that a search warrant was executed at a residence in the 3200 block of Grand Lake Road because detectives believed there was a possibility that meth manufacturing was going on there. He said they've recovered enough evidence to substantiate that.
Lt. Davis said an arrest has been made, but not as a result of the search warrant.
"The owner of the house was arrested on charges earlier this morning, about 2:30, when our deputy came across him," Davis said. "He was in a parking lot. The deputy came up on the vehicle, the driver was acting nervous, and in plain view, our deputy noticed methamphetamines, some cash and a weapon."
The deputy searched the vehicle and found two vials of a substance that tested positive for meth, as well as other drug paraphernalia, which led investigators to the home.
Davis said 31-year-old Craig Grimsley was arrested for possessing with intent to distribute meth, possessing drug paraphernalia and possessing a firearm with a controlled dangerous substance. Additional charges are expected to be filed.
"In the residence was his pregnant wife, as well as a young child," Davis said. "They were safely removed from the residence in order for us to search this house and do what we needed to do to make sure it was safe. This house is located next to other houses, just feet away. The neighborhood here, folks are concerned. And any time you're dealing with a meth lab, you're looking at a highly volatile, potentially explosive situation, and our folks were methodical in their process this morning."
