Owasso Police arrested three people on drug complaints after an early morning meth lab investigation. About a dozen people from five apartments in Owasso were evacuated early Wednesday morning after police discovered the meth lab. Police acting on a tip were called to an apartment complex in downtown Owasso around midnight. The anonymous caller said they smelled a strong chemical odor. Barking dogs in one apartment alerted the people inside that officers were there. Owasso Police Lt. Cliff Motto says "at that point an officer heard a lot of glass breaking when the smell got strong, we wound up evacuating the occupants of the apartment and the whole wing of this apartment complex." Police arrested three people, ages 18, 19, and 39, and they now each face several drug related charges.
