OHP trooper Mike Yelton, "There's an active lab in the truck, methamphetamine lab and also the driver had paraphernalia, drug paraphernalia consistent with that on his person."

A check shows the truck was stolen from Sand Springs. The suspects were taken to the Creek Country Jail. Charges are pending.
