  • In the early morning hours of March 16, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to Esther Drive in Moss Bluff in regards to an explosive noise.
    Detectives with the Combined Anti-Drug Task Force (C.A.T. Team) arrived at the scene and discovered that Rachel A. Graham, 26, John E. Dunn, 44, and Steven S. Willis, 18, all of Esther Drive, Moss Bluff, were allegedly in the process of manufacturing methamphetamine when an unexpected chemical reaction occurred. As they threw the chemicals out of the residence, the chemicals exploded causing a fire.
    Miller Environmental was called to dismantle and clean up the meth lab. No injuries or property damage occurred.
    Graham, Dunn, and Willis were arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with creation/operation of a clandestine lab.
    The investigation is continuing with more arrests possible. Bonds have not been set at this time.
    In November 2010, detectives with the Combined Anti-Drug Task Force (C.A.T. Team) arrested Graham, Dunn, and Willis, after discovering a methamphetamine lab at the same residence.
    They were all booked into Calcasieu Correctional Center on November 23 and charged with creation/operation of a clandestine lab; illegal use of controlled substances in the presence of a minor; and drug paraphernalia. Judge Clayton Davis set Graham and Willis’ bond at $6,000 and Dunn’s bond at $27,000 for that arrest.
