Osage County authorities shut down a rural meth lab and make several arrests early Wednesday.

A multi-agency drug task force served a search warrant at a home north of Skiatook late Tuesday night. They found a meth lab and guns. Three adults are now in custody. Officers say they had been working this case for months after neighbors tipped them off.

David Hinman with the Drug Task Force: "It's in a rural area, and I think it probably couldn't have been done without the citizens of this area and also the agencies that are here."

Two children were also in the home. They are now in DHS custody.

Authorities say the lab had been operating at least two months, and produced hundreds of dollars of meth a day.
