Meth lab busted in Shreveport casino guest room

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) – Shreveport Police confirm the discovery of a working meth lab set up inside a downtown hotel late Thursday night, after smoke alarms gave away the location.

Sgt. Bill Goodin says a Shreveport Police officer working off-duty security at the Sam's Town Hotel in the 300 block of Clyde Fant Parkway responded just after 9:30 p.m. to a report of a smoke alarm going off in a guest room on the 20th floor of the building. He arrived to find a very smoky room.  On taking a closer look, he discovered what he believed to be a methamphetamine lab.

Nearby rooms were evacuated and agents with the Caddo-Shreveport Narcotics Unit were called in. The agents, who are trained and certified to dismantle these suspected labs and recover evidence from them, arrived at the hotel and, after working for about two hours, made the scene safe. Guests were allowed to return to their rooms around 12:30 Friday morning.

The two occupants of the room, 31 year old Quentin Lucas and 34 year old Jennifer Walter, both of Camden, Arkansas, were booked into the Shreveport City Jail on one count each of creation and/or operation of a clandestine lab.

Thursday's meth lab bust becomes the fourth since Tuesday in Caddo Parish.
