GONZALES - Detectives with the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office arrested three people and shut down what turned out to be a mobile meth cooking operation after they pulled over a vehicle for a seat belt violation on Friday.

Detectives said they stopped a vehicle shortly after it pulled out of the parking lot of a local pharmacy when they noticed the occupants were not wearing seat belts. After identifying the occupants of the vehicle, detectives said they searched the car and found two portable clandestine labs, methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, Suboxone and chemical precursors used in the manufacture of meth. All three occupants of the vehicle were taken into custody.

46-year-old Phil Baker Jr., of St. Amant, was arrested and charged with two counts of creation of a clandestine lab, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and no seat belt.

44-year-old Denise Babin, of Gonzales, was arrested and charged with two counts of creation of a clandestine lab, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and no seat belt.

55-year-old Cynthia Roshto, of Geismar, was arrested and charged with two counts of creation of a clandestine lab, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a schedule III CDS and no seat belt.

All were booked into the Ascension Parish Jail and have not been released.
