Three Tulsans were arrested after a meth lab was found at a house where an infant lived, police reported.

A Department of Human Services social worker had called police to a home in the 400 block of South 43rd West Avenue about 2:30 p.m. Thursday after learning that the residents had been manufacturing methamphetamine in the presence of an 8-month-old baby.

 

Officers noted a strong chemical odor inside the home and found components of a meth lab in the laundry room, police said.

Lowery Newton Irby, 26, Marza Floyd, 23, and Ellis McDougall, 48, were taken into custody, according to an arrest report.

Irby, who had been wanted for violating a protective order, was booked into the Tulsa Jail on complaints of child neglect and endeavoring to manufacture a controlled dangerous substance, jail records show.

Floyd and McDougall were arrested on the same complaints.

The baby was taken into DHS custody.
