Woman allegedly operated meth lab in Louisiana hotel

A Bossier City woman has been arrested, accused of operating a meth lab at a casino hotel in Shreveport.

Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator and Police Chief Willie Shaw say authorities were called to the hotel Thursday after a fire alarm was activated on the 14th floor because of smoke from two people cooking meth in a room.

Agents with the Caddo-Shreveport Narcotics Unit found an old lab inside the room and two active labs, along with components needed to make the illegal drug, hidden in an air conditioning vent.

Facing charges of creation and operation of a clandestine lab and criminal property damage is 30-year-old Dawn Meredith. Bond information was not immediately available.

Authorities are searching for at least one other suspect, who police say fled the scene.
