BATON ROUGE - A Prairieville man has been arrested after narcotics investigators said they caught him making meth at his Baton Rouge business.

42-year-old John Thomas was arrested Thursday after the Baton Rouge Narcotics Unit searched his business, TNT Tint in Baton Rouge.

Trooper Russell Graham said investigators approached Thomas’ business Thursday and found him making meth in a lab there.  DEA agents were called in to process the lab, and Thomas was arrested in suspicion of operating a clandestine lab and possessing crystal meth.

Graham said the investigation is ongoing, and additional charges may be coming.
