A home in Houma, Louisiana was raided by the Lafourche Parish Drug Task Force. The Chauvin family owned the house. Sandy Chauvin, 60, and her two sons Nicholas, 35, and Christian, 43, were all arrested. They had a meth lab inside the house. The police had gone there to serve a warrant on one of the sons and found not only the meth lab but 133 cats as well!
A recent meth lab bust by deputies in Louisiana resulted in two drug arrests and an unexpected discovery.
It took animal control deputies several days to remove all the cats and bring them to the Lafourche Parish Animal Shelter. Officials say all the cats were euthanized “due to their condition.”
Sheriff Craig Webre says his deputies found more than 130 cats when they were sent to a residence last month, WGNO reported. They also found seven dead cats and describe the living conditions as “very poor” with “a large amount of fecal matter” throughout the residence.
Lafourche Parish deputies arrested Sandy Chauvin on Feb. 1 and booked her with animal cruelty and drug charges. She was released after posting $40,000 bond.
The bust happened Friday, January 13, when deputies searched the house in Houma after arresting Chauvin’s son, Nicholas Chauvin, for distribution of methamphetamine.
Deputies say they found “tools and other items commonly associated with the manufacture of methamphetamine” at the house and also arrested his brother, Christian Chauvin, for drug charges.
