AMITE- Tangipahoa Parish sheriff's deputies have shut down several methamphetamine operations and arrested five people on related drug counts.

Deputies say a search of a Kentwood home resulted in confiscation of a small meth lab, methamphetamine and several pistols and rifles.

The Advocate reports 44-year-old James Keith Luper and 40-year-old Tracie Booty were booked with possession of a firearm while in possession of a dangerous and controlled substance.

In a separate case, deputies confiscated several small meth labs in Amite and made three arrests.
