TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Tulsa County sheriff’s deputies have uncovered a type of methamphetamine lab that is new to northeastern Oklahoma.

The Violent Crime Drug Task Force seized five pounds of crystal meth Friday that was made in a conversion meth lab. Maj. Shannon Clark says only a partial step in the manufacturing process is carried out with the lab and raw or unrefined drug precursors are chemically altered into a new chemical that is used on the street as the final product.

The Tulsa World reports that deputies serving a search warrant at an auto sales business discovered the lab and noticed that what they had found was not consistent with the one-pot, or shake-and-bake, labs to which they’re accustomed.

Federal agents say the production method is popular in and around Dallas.
