LAWTON_ Three people were arrested early Sunday morning following a search warrant that police say yielded materials used to manufacture methamphetamine. It happened at a home in the 4600 block of Caber Circle. That's in the Sungate neighborhood just off of southeast 45th street in east Lawton.

Police had been on the scene since early Saturday evening. Officers were serving an arrest warrant at the home when they discovered what appeared to be components of a meth lab. After obtaining a search warrant, special operations detectives combed through the home and confirmed the officers' suspicions.

Fortunately, detectives say the people at the home were not cooking meth at the time. However, they say during the search they found dangerous and explosive chemicals used to make the drug as well as drug paraphranalia. Investigators suspect the people were manufacturing for personal use.

Police say this is not their first time to serve a search warrant at the home. They say a previous search yielded similar results and involved the same suspects.
