Charges dropped in LaPlace meth lab arrest for ‘lack of evidence …

Charges have been dropped against a LaPlace man arrested in 2015 on suspicion of operating a crystal methamphetamine lab in his house, L’Observateur reports.

Citing court records, the report says the St. John the Baptist Parish District Attorney’s Office had scrapped its case against David Gardner, 48, due to “lack of evidence.”

Gardner was arrested in 2015 following a month-long stake-out of his home on Golfview Drive, which authorities said they searched under a warrant for cyber stalking and criminal trespass.

Inside the home, authorities said they found a small amount of crystal meth, evidence of meth cooking and drug paraphernalia used in the manufacture and sale of meth.
