Pekin police have made another arrest in connection with a meth lab bust.
Ty Lopez, 26, is known to police as "The Cook," the man authorities believe was operating the meth lab at 611 North Second St. Pekin Police and the Tazewell County Sheriff's office executed a search warrant at the address Monday morning and arrested Dannie Sea, 38, and Kari Sea, 31, for supplying precursors of meth and the property for manufacturing meth.
Lopez, who was not present during the search, was arrested in East Peoria Tuesday morning.
The State Police Meth Response Team has dismantled the meth lab. The arrests were part of an ongoing Meth Task Force named "Operation Copperhead."
