McALESTER, Okla. (AP) - The distinctive smell given off from the manufacture of methamphetamine led McAlester authorities to a meth lab in an apartment across the street from the police station.
Four people were arrested Monday after police were called about the fumes.
The McAlester News-Capital reports that police found two people - 28-year-old Jessica Ann Smith and 23-year-old Thomas McElroy - in the apartment with numerous items used to manufacture meth.
An affidavit says two other people approached the apartment and McElroy shouted that it was a bad time to visit. Police found items for making meth with one of the people and arrested them both - 32-year-old Mitchell Stripe and 23-year-old Vivian Redd.
The suspects have a February 22nd court date.
