Three people are behind bars for operating meth labs in the 600 block of Jenkins Road in Shreveport.

Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator and Shreveport Police Chief Willie Shaw say the arrests followed a tip to the Caddo-Shreveport Narcotics Task Force that someone was manufacturing methamphetamine at a home located at 618 Jenkins in north Caddo Parish.

Agents searched the residents and found two inactive one-pot meth labs. They also located chemicals and precursors necessary for manufacturing meth.

Two people, 59-year-old Sharee Booth -- one of the residents -- and 40-year-old Virgil Kreidel were arrested at the house and booked into Caddo Correctional Center on two counts each of creation/operation of a clandestine lab. Another resident, 34-year-old Lacie Lynn Booth, was arrested at her workplace and booked for manufacturing schedule II narcotics.

Three agents suffered difficulty breathing after entering the home where the labs were located. They were taken to a local hospital, where they were treated and released.

The investigation continues and additional arrests are expected.
