TULSA, OKLAHOMA -- A traffic stop on U.S. Highway 169 late Monday night leads to the arrest of a 37-year old Tulsa woman after Tulsa Police find materials in her car associated with a mobile meth lab.

The traffic stop was in the 7500 block of southbound 169 shortly before 11:30 p.m.

Officers had stopped the car because it had an expired tag. In the process of questioning the driver, the officer noticed she was acting very nervous.

A K-9 drug dog was called in and it hit on a backpack in the car's backseat.

Tulsa Police arrested Julia Starkey and put her in a haz-mat suit to keep her from contaminating the police car.

Police say mobile meth labs are becoming more common in the Tulsa area.

Starky was booked into the Tulsa County jail.
