Narcotics agents in Tangipahoa Parish recently caught three meth makers in the act, according to the sheriff’s office.
26-year-old Nicholas Rushing, 22-year-old Michael Wolbers and 21-year-old Renee Hanson were all arrested Tuesday after the sheriff’s office said they found them inside a motor home with an active meth lab in Ponchatoula.
Deputies had gone to the motor home after getting reports someone had been making methamphetamines there. When deputies arrived they said all three were in the motor home along with a toddler, and they could smell meth cooking.
Investigators later found meth being made, and said the three suspects admitted to deputies there was a lab in the motor home.
An ambulance was called to take care of the child and Hanson, who is pregnant. The Office of Children Services was also called in regards to the toddler.
All three suspects were booked into the Tangipahoa Parish jail in suspicion of making meth, child desertion, and having guns and drugs at the same time.
Deputies said Rushing also had outstanding warrants in Tangipahoa Parish, and was on a fifteen-year felony probation. Wolbers was also wanted out of Jefferson Parish for a burglary charge, and was ordered held without bond.
