Deputies make meth lab arrest in Ponchatoula

Tangipahoa Parish sheriff’s detectives arrested a man Tuesday accused of making methamphetamine in his home on Hollie Lane in Ponchatoula.

Cameron Perry, 43, was booked with possession and manufacturing of methamphetamine, according to a Sheriff’s Office news release issued Wednesday.

Sheriff’s Office detectives were notified via anonymous tip Tuesday about illegal narcotics being made at the Hollie Lane home.

Detectives who searched the home in the presence of Perry found a “one-pot method” vessel for meth manufacturing in the home’s kitchen.

At the time of Perry’s arrest Tuesday, he was out of jail on bond related to previous counts of manufacturing meth, possession of meth and child endangerment.
