Authorities Find Meth Lab & Possible Explosives in Truck

Three people are in custody Wednesday morning after Lubbock police discovered the possible makings of a meth lab and explosive devices. NewsChannel 11's Suleika Acosta uncovers the details.

At around 7:30 Tuesday night officers stopped a truck near the Driftwood Apartments located at 5800 Toledo. They searched the vehicle and found what looked like a mobile meth lab. That's not all officers found. They also discovered what appeared to be two pipe bombs, one in the bed and one behind the seat of the truck. Officers called in the bomb squad to assist. The squad removed the devices with a special robot. Then they used a disrupter to destroy the pipes in a park across the street.

Authorities tell us they are still investigating whether or not the devices were actual bombs. "It's my understanding right now that it doesn't appear that they were actually explosive devices, we don't know exactly what they were," says Lieutenant.. Roy Bassett.

Just before midnight officers searched one suspect's apartment. Officers tell us searched for more explosive devices and narcotics. At this point they can not tell what they found in the apartment.

The two suspects inside the truck were arrested. A woman at the apartment is also in custody this morning.
