An undercover investigation nets a major meth lab bust in Sand Springs. Officers say they spent nearly two weeks watching a house in Sand Springs to shut down the lab.

Late Thursday night, they made their move. They served a search warrant, and arrested two people. Police say it took so long to make the bust, because the suspects went to the abandoned home for only one reason. Sand Springs Police Sgt John Mars: "They don't live here. They use the house for no other means than to manufacture their meth. They have no electricity, they have no water. They run off a gas powered compressor when they need electricity."

Kelvin James Moser and Mattie Kathrine Brooker were arrested. Officers found five gallons of meth oil, some finished meth, along with some marijuana and a stolen car. Charges are pending.

Police say the meth oil translates into about half a pound of finished meth, or more than 22-thousand dollars on the street.
