HAHNVILLE, La. (AP) — A Louisiana middle school teacher is in custody after investigators say they uncovered evidence that she and her husband were running a meth lab at the home they shared with their 7-year-old child.
Sheriff's spokesman Capt. Pat Yoes says 37-year-old teacher Kristy Allen and her husband, 42-year-old Ryan Allen, face charges including creating and operating a clandestine laboratory and possession of methamphetamine.
The New Orleans Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/2iQFG5R ) that the Allens were arrested Wednesday and jailed on $500,000 bond each.
St. Charles Parish Public Schools spokeswoman Stevie Crovetto says Kristy Allen was in her second year at a middle school where she taught reading and writing until she was fired after her arrest.
It wasn't immediately clear if the Allens had lawyers.
