TULSA, OK -- Late Wednesday and early Thursday morning Tulsa Police intercepted a pair of working meth labs and tracked down several suspects in connection with those two labs.

Police say the lab operating at 28th and Garnett was active when they arrived. 

Officers discovered the lab late Wednesday night after neighbors complained of a suspicious smell. When police officers arrived they found an active meth lab, full of toxic materials.

EMSA, firefighters and Tulsa Fire hazmat crews were all called in to help clean up the meth lab scene.

"Neighbors smelled what they thought was a meth lab, so officers responded, and they were able to determine yes it was a meth lab. About the time they arrived, suspects began running out of the house. Couple ran on foot and one got in a car and took off," said Tulsa Police Captain Randy Hughes.

Police say all four of the suspects were caught and are in custody.

Tulsa Police also wrapped up a three-day investigation into another meth lab early Thursday morning.

On Monday evening, police found a mobile meth lab during a car stop and arrested two people.

The investigation led Tulsa Police to get a search warrant for a home at Archer and Tacoma. That's where they found a shake and bake meth lab.

Officers arrested two more people at the home.
