McALESTER (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 Logan 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 Ray Stripe and 23-year-old Vivian Corean Redd.
The suspects have a Feb. 22 court date.
