Muskogee County authorities make a major meth lab bust

Updated:
Muskogee County Sheriff deputies took more than a half a million dollars in meth off the street this week, after busting their 4th meth lab in a week, this time in Warner.

Investigators arrested 45-year old Larry Murry on complaints of trying to manufacture a controlled substance and possession of a firearm.

A tip led authorities to a backyard shed in Warner. When investigators opened the doors and thought the lab was just a small time operation.

Muskogee County UnderSheriff Juston Hutchinson: "It didn't look that big but after we started pulling the stuff out of the corners and what was covered up and in certain areas. The amount of chemicals, this was a 7-day a week working lab, this was a thriving business."

Deputies also found two pounds of homemade iodine crystals, a product used in the cooking process. Hutchinson says Murry might have been selling the crystals to other meth cookers.
