Scott Police Chief Chad Leger says when his officers went to a home to discuss vagrancy and panhandling with one of the home's residents, they discovered several active and in-active methamphetamine labs in the house and on the property.

Yesterday, Scott Police Officers went to the 2900 block of West Willow, Lot #116, to talk to Sean Wagers about panhandling and vagrancy when they saw two bottles in the back of a truck parked at the home.

The two bottles, they believe, contained residue from making meth.  When they talked to the residents, Sean Wagner, Melinda Sellers and Christopher Sellers, they all denied knowing anything about the bottles.

The officers advised them of their Miranda rights, and received written consent to search the home and property.

Lafayette HazMat and Scott Fire Department helped to locate and identify the items dealing with the production of methamphetamine.

While searching the truck, police found two active meth labs.  They found two in-active meth labs in the home and one still actively cooking methamphetamine.

Officers say they also found multiple items of drug paraphernalia along with some marijuana and methamphetamine.

Police say Christopher Sellers admitted to them that the laboratories, methamphetamine and marijuana were his.  He confessed to operating the lab, while Melinda Sellers acknowledged knowing about the lab.

Christopher Sellers was arrested on the following charges:

  • Create/Operate a Clandestine Laboratory
  • Possession with intent to distribute Schedule II (Methamphetamine)
  • Possession of Marijuana
  • Possession of Drug Paraphernalia

Melinda Sellers was arrested on the following charges:
