BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

A Bossier City couple is facing a laundry list of drug charges, after sheriffs deputies are discovered a suspected meth lab inside a garage at a home in North Bossier's Legacy subdivision early Friday morning.

Craig Grimsley, 31, and his 28-year-old wife Jessica Grimsley are each charged with the following:

• Possession of Schedule I, Psilocybin (Mushrooms)
• Manufacture of Schedule I, Psilocybin
• Possession of Schedule II, Methamphetamine, with intent to distribute
• Manufacture of Schedule II, Methamphetamine
• Possession of Schedule I, LSD
• Possession of Schedule I, MCMA (Ecstasy)
• Possession of Schedule I, Marijuana
• Possession of drug paraphernalia
• Possession of a controlled dangerous substance in the presence of a minor
• Possession of CDS with a firearm

Agents with the Bossier Sheriff's Office Narcotics Task Force were seen wearing gas masks and hazmat suits Friday morning as they moved in and out of this 1-story brick home in the 3200 block of Grand Lake Road. Beakers and other chemical handling equipment could be seen sitting on a table that's been set up outside.

According to Lt. Bill Davis, the discovery was made around 2:30 a.m. Friday, after a patrol officer spotted a suspicious vehicle at the subdivision clubhouse early Friday morning. Investigating further, Davis says the deputy found probable cause to search the Grimsley's vehicle and allegedly found a weapon, cash and 2 glass vials with suspected methamphetamine inside. Davis says the substance in the vials field-tested positive for meth.

That led to a search of the man's home, where the suspected meth lab was found in the garage.

Davis says Grimsley's wife, who is pregnant, and a child around 3 years of age also live in the home, and were removed for their safety. Jessica Grimsley was arrested Friday afternoon and also booked into the Bossier Maximum Security Facility. The child is with family.

During the search of the residence this morning, Davis says agents found numerous items used for manufacturing Methamphetamine and Psilocybin, along with LSD, Ecstasy, Marijuana and drug paraphernalia.  Agents also seized cash and 10 firearms, including pistols, shotguns and rifles.

Police say additional charges are possible.

Neighbors on scene didn't want to be identified, but say they are shocked by the situation. "It's scary to me to know that a drug dealer lived two houses down from me and my children and to know that people who were buying drugs were coming within two houses down from me, that's scary." They say they moved to this neighborhood because of the low crime statistics: "You don't expect this from our neighborhood."
