State Meth Lab?

Oklahoma City, OK – Meth lab found in state building in Tulsa

TULSA, Okla. (AP) Tulsa police and Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers say a meth lab has been found in a stairwell of the State Services Building in downtown Tulsa.

OHP Lt. George Brown calls it the most brazen location he's ever seen a meth lab.

The lab was found about 10 a.m. Monday by groundskeepers and investigators believe it was built after the building closed Friday. It was found at the bottom of the stairwell in an area hidden from easy view.

Authorities say a police HAZMAT team was able to remove the lab without disrupting business at any of the state offices.

The building houses agencies ranging from the Department of Human Services to child support offices.
