Arrest made after meth lab found in storm drain


A 20-year-old Claremore man was arrested Wednesday night following the discovery of a soon-to-be operational meth lab.
Claremore Police officers responded to a suspicious subject call just after 10 p.m. in the Oklahoma Plaza construction site, southeast of Lowe’s. Lt. Steve Cox said as officers arrived on scene, three male subjects were discovered in and around the property’s storm drains. 
“Once (the suspects) saw the officers, they began to run. Two of the three males managed to get away, while the 20-year-old was detained,” said Cox.
Officers eventually found what appeared to be components used to manufacture methamphetamine in one of the storm drains. Following a meth lab investigation, the supplies seemed to have been used to create meth before, said Cox.
The name of the suspect in custody cannot be released at this time since investigation is ongoing as to the location of the remaining suspects. 
The suspect has been charged with conspiracy to deliver manufactured drugs.
Bond has been set at $20,000.
