There was some cooking going on inside the trailer at 584 Rollins Road in Moss Bluff. They were not cooking hamburger helper. Sheriff's deputies arrived to serve a warrant for creation of a lab and possession with intent to distribute. They were just in time to catch the cooks in the act.  (Editor's Note ...
