SAND SPRINGS, OK -- Police discovered a meth lab and made one arrest after reports of a strange odor near downtown in Sand Springs overnight.

Sand Springs Police say they were called to a home in the 200 block of North Grant at 11:09 p.m. Sunday.   

Neighbors reported smelling a suspicious odor in a home and called for police.  Police said the smell led them to a full working meth lab, including a two-liter bottle full of meth-making materials.

Assistant Police Chief Mike Carter says officers found an operating space heater in close proximity to the lab.   

Carter says 32-year old Christopher Carlock was taken into custody. 

Carlock was arrested on the complaints of manufacture of meth and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

"This is the same thing that Tulsa's experiencing, it is the shake and bake method that's become the common thing for us to be seeing.  We see a lot of remnants of the shake and bake," said Sgt. John Tillman, Sand Springs Police.

Tillman said Carlock had just started making meth moments before officers arrived at the home.

This is the first meth lab found within the Sand Springs city limits this year.
