Michael W. Fletcher
Jessica N. Farrell
Bossier Sheriff Larry Deen says a methamphetamine lab in Haughton was shut down Tuesday evening, and two roommates at the residence are behind bars.
Jessica N. Farrell, 27, and Michael W. Fletcher, 61, both of the 100 block of Placker Lane in Haughton, were arrested on multiple counts of manufacturing meth at their residence. A third suspect, Robert B. Stinson, 35, is wanted on multiple arrest warrants of similar charges.
Narcotics agents had earlier received information that there was a meth lab at the house. When officers from the Bossier Sheriff's Department and Haughton Police Department met the residents at the front door, the agents smelled an odor of chemicals coming from inside the residence. The roommates gave consent to search the residence, and that's when agents found evidence of manufacturing methamphetamines at three locations inside the house and five outside.
Officers also found drug paraphernalia, including pipes, needles and rolling papers, as well as various legend drugs, methamphetamine and marijuana in Farrell's bedroom and on her person. She admitted to cooking meth with her boyfriend, Stinson, who remains wanted for possession of Schedule II (methamphetamine), two counts of possession of legend drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of Schedule I (marijuana) and eight counts of manufacturing of Schedule II (meth) with a total bond of $301,000. He is described as a white male, 5' 9", approximately 165 pounds, bald, with multiple tattoos on his arm.
Farrell was arrested for possession of Schedule II (methamphetamine), two counts of possession of legend drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of Schedule I (marijuana) - second offense - and eight counts of manufacturing of Schedule II (meth); her bond is pending. Fletcher was charged with eight counts of manufacturing of Schedule II (meth); his bond is pending.
Both were transported to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility.
