East Feliciana deputies find meth labs under flower pot

East Feliciana Parish sheriff’s deputies arrested a 31-year-old man on drug counts Wednesday after investigating a domestic disturbance, a spokesman for Sheriff Talmadge Bunch said.

Detective Don McKey said deputies went to the home of Brandon Cupit, 2716 Holly Ridge Lane, west of Wilson, to answer a complaint that Cupit had struck his wife during an argument.

Deputies observed marks on the woman’s neck that indicated she had been attacked, and they also found two working crystal methamphetamine labs in bottles under a flower pot outside the residence, McKey said.

Cupit was booked at the Parish Jail on two counts of operation of a clandestine lab and domestic abuse battery.

A contractor was called to dispose of the hazardous materials.
