A Tulsa police arrest and booking report states police were called to investigate a disturbance and found something else- a meth lab. Police said there was a young child inside the apartment at the time.

A neighbor told FOX23’s Price McKeon he did not want us to show his face because he lives in the same building where police reports said they found a meth lab.

He said, “I was just trying to get home from work.”

But he said he could not get home because there were about eight police cars blocking off the area.

Police arrested Kerri Padron and Samuel Harris Friday near 81st and Yale. 

FOX23 obtained the arrest report. It states officers were responding to a disturbance call at this apartment. It said when officers were allowed inside they found a 2-year old-girl in “very bad living conditions” and evidence of a meth lab.

The report stated after officers got a search waiver they found a functional meth lab inside.

The neighbor said he saw the meth lab cleanup team outside the building.

He described the scene he saw Friday night, “There were three people in gas masks.”

Padron and Harris were booked in the Tulsa County Jail. According to the arrest report they are both being held for child endangerment and endeavoring to manufacture.

The report stated the girl was taken into DHS custody.

According to the jail’s website, Padron is being held on a $50,000 bond and Harris is being held on a $75,000 bond at the Tulsa County Jail.
