TAHLEQUAH — See the attached video interview on the right side of this page. You can find the full story on Friday morning's arrests in the Sunday, Sept. 2 edition of the Daily Press.
Two people were arrested early Friday after members of the Eastern Oklahoma Violent Crimes Task Force served warrants at a Tahlequah home and discovered numerous methamphetamine labs, explosive devices and a firearm.
Police said the warrants were served following an ongoing investigation into illegal drug activity in the neighborhood. Officers had previously received information that firearms might also be located in the residence.
Investigators spent more than four hours at the home processing the scene, running tests on the liquids found inside plastic bottles, and packaging the remnants for proper disposal. Agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, who are part of the local violent crimes task force, seized the explosive devices.
