BOSSIER PARISH, La. (KTBS) -

Officials are investigating a meth lab that was run out of a home in Bossier Parish.

They made the discovery in the 3200 block of Grand Lake Road.  The investigation began when patrol officers noticed a suspicious vehicle  at the Legacy Clubhouse. When officers searched the vehicle - they found a weapon, cash and two glass vials of suspected methamphetamine that field tested positive for meth - leading to the search of the man's home. 

31 year-old Craig Grimsley was arrested Friday morning on drug and weapons charges. Grimsley's wife, 28 year-old Jessica Grimsley, who is pregnant and their 3 year-old child were also at the home at the time of the search.  

Later Friday afternoon, Jessica was also arrested. Both Mr. and Mrs. Grimsley are charged with possession of schedule I psilocybin aka mushrooms, manufacture of schedule I psilocybin, possession of schedule II methamphetamine with intent to distribute, manufacture of schedule II methamphetamine, possession of schedule I LSD, possession of schedule I MCMA aka Ecstasy, possession of schedule I marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a controlled and dangerous substance in the presence of a minor and possession of CDS with a firearm.

The news shocked the entire neighborhood of the legacy subdivision in bossier city. We spoke with residents who stood by in complete disbelief that a meth lab was operating right in their backyard. The neighbors  didn't want their identities revealed because they say it's their home, their neighborhood and they say it's a sensitive subject.

"It's scary to me to know that a drug dealer was living two houses down from me, and people who were buying drugs lived two houses down from me."

They say they feel violated after a meth lab was found walking distance from their front door.

"I'm not scared (to reveal my identity) by any means but it's embarrassing. You don't expect this from our neighborhood." Another neighbor said, I'm angry because there are children in this neighborhood that run and play in this area. There are school bus stops at each end of this street."

Lt.. Bill Davis with Bossier Parish Sheriff's office says they've never had a bust in this neighborhood before, but that doesn't mean something like this can't happen.

"When you talk to our Narcotics agents, they'll tell you this is something we deal with on a routine basis. It may not make the news everyday, but the reality is, it's something that we have to deal with."

One neighbor who lived a little closer says these days people just try to mind their business. But now she says she's going to do differently in an effort to keep her neighbors and her family safe.

"It's been suspicious activity at his house from day one. Traffic in and out, different people living there. From now on, I'm going to report everything. If I think something is suspicious, I'm going to call."

Grimley's 3 year-old is staying with family members at this time. 

Agents also seized 10 firearms, including pistols, shotguns and rifles. Police say that additional charges for both Craig and Jessica are possible. 

The bust was handled by Bossier Police and Sheriff's Office as well as Benton's Fire Department. Officials say they've all been working together for the last year and a half because crime doesn't care about jurisdictions.
