Tulsa Fire Department investigators arrested two men on meth lab related complaints Saturday night. Jeffery Wayne McBride and Charles Timothy Spencer were taken into custody at about 9 p.m. in the 100 block of North College Avenue.

A large amount of the ingredients needed to manufacture methamphetamine was found at the residence.

Investigators say McBride, 47, had three outstanding felony warrants and five misdemeanor warrants. Investigators had been searching for him for several weeks.

While in custody, authorities say McBride admitted manufacturing meth amphetamines the day before a 15-month-old boy died in a house fire in the 1400 block of West Admiral on Thursday, November 10, 2011.

Charles Spencer, 60, has not been connected to the fatality fire, according to a release by the Tulsa Fire Department.

Both men were book on complaints of endeavoring to manufacturing methamphetamine.

Fire Department officials encourage residents to be alert and report suspicious activity in their neighborhoods. Leads from citizens led to several arrests over the past few weeks.

If you think someone may be manufacturing meth or committing another crime, call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS. Callers remain anonymous.
