Jenks Police believe a meth lab found on the side of the road Tuesday could be connected to a big bust over the weekend. Officers arrested 47 year old Terry Ramey Sunday after catching him in a drug deal. When they went to his home, they found meth stored in containers and stolen property including cell phones, video cameras, stereo equipment and guns. Police say most of the goods were busted up and stripped down for the lithium in their batteries. Lithium's a meth making ingredient. Jenks Police say it's going to be hard for individuals to identify the stolen items because they're in pieces. Police say the person who dumped a lab on the side of the road Tuesday morning might have gotten scared after the weekend bust. Jenks PD Det. Don Selle says "the containers on the lab that we got on the bust we had this weekend and the one we had on the side of the road were similar. We can't say there's a connection but it certainly appears that there could be." Officers say the person who dumped the lab left behind enough evidence that police feel confident they'll be making another arrest soon.
