GONZALES, LA (WAFB) -

Authorities said a man was arrested after a meth lab was found at his home during a routine probation visit Tuesday.

The Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office said Scott Bateman, 36, of Gonzales was charged with operating a clandestine meth lab, possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. He is awaiting bond.

Deputies said agents with the Louisiana State Probation and Parole found what they thought was a meth lab and called the sheriff's office to investigate further. APSO confirmed the meth lab.

Officials said narcotics detectives and a hazardous materials team removed the meth lab and properly disposed of all of the materials.

Bateman was on probation for possession of meth and simple burglary.
