Suspected meth lab
A Choudrant man was arrested Saturday after an investigation led to an alleged meth lab in a backpack.
According to the arrest affidavit, Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Dennis Penuell noticed that Jack Eugene Cook Jr., 41, of 2750 Louisiana Highway 820 in Choudrant, was allegedly buying excessive amounts of the controlled substance pseudoephedrine over the past few months.
Penuell reportedly asked Cook if he was cooking methamphetamine, which Cook denied. Cook allegedly gave Penuell permission to search his property.
