Two Reserve residents were arrested Tuesday, December 19, 2017 after detectives discovered a meth lab in their home. Arrested were Caleb M. Sikes, 27, and Lisa Simoneaux, 27.

On Tuesday, December 19, 2017 the Special Operations Division of the St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration executed a narcotics search warrant in the 100 block of East 17th Street in Reserve. The warrant was obtained after detectives conducted an investigation that revealed Sikes and Simoneaux were manufacturing methamphetamine at the residence. Upon execution of the warrant, Sikes and Simoneaux were found to be in possession of a staggering amount of materials used to manufacture methamphetamine as well as a small amount of the completed product.

Detectives also discovered these harmful and toxic materials were located inside the residence shared with their two juvenile children. The construction of these items is commonly referred to as “meth labs” or “clandestine labs.” These labs produced deadly chemical reactions that contaminate the area where they are located. Special and expensive cleanup processes are involved to safely remove the items recovered in this investigation.

Sikes was booked with possession or distribution of drug paraphernalia 1st offense (misd), cruelty to juveniles – with force/violence, possession of methamphetamine less than 28 grams (felony), creation or operation of a clandestine laboratory for the unlawful manufacture of a controlled dangerous subject (felony). He is being held in custody in lieu of a $66,500 bond.
