Arkansas trio stock lab in parish

Rachel_LeimkuhlWilliam_LeimkuhulTerry_KingThree Arkansas residents are marking time in a Webster Parish jail for purchasing products to stock their methamphetamine lab locally.

Rachel Leimkuhl, 33, of the 1000 block of Champano Road, El Dorado, Arkansas was arrested for creation of a clandestine meth lab, open container, possession of CDS Sch. II (methamphetamine) and possession of Xanax.

William Michael Leimkuhl, 33 and Terry King, 51, of the same address, were arrested on charges of creation of a clandestine meth lab and open container.

The North Webster Drug Task Force – Webster Parish Sheriff's Lt. Shawn Baker, Springhill Police Chief Will Lynd and SPD detective Ronald Wedgeworth – stopped a vehicle in which Rachel Leimkuhl was the driver and the others were passengers, after learning the three had purchased Pseudoephedrine at a Springhill pharmacy.

"Rachel was the operator of the vehicle," Baker said. "She was in possession of the Xanax pills and she had methamphetamine on her person."

Reportedly, there was also an open container of whiskey in the vehicle.

"All three were placed in custody for open container," Baker said. "A search of the vehicle revealed two boxes of pseudeophedrine pills and in the trunk of the vehicle were two HGL gas generators."

The three are incarcerated at Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center. Bonds have not been set.
