Final meth lab suspect caught

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Police in Northampton County say they've caught the final suspect wanted in connection with a meth lab that exploded inside a Bethlehem home.

Daniel James Houser, 39, was arrested early Sunday morning by Bethlehem Police.

Dispatch officials contacted police when Houser arrived at St. Luke's University Hospital around 2:30 a.m. When police arrived at the hospital, Houser was taken into custody.

Back on March 8, police were getting ready to execute a search warrant on 1965 Greenleaf Street in Bethlehem. Just hours before they arrived, the house exploded, injuring seven people, including two police officers.

Jeffrey Caulfield, 28,  and 39-year-old Davina Bowler had already been arrested in connection with the crime. Homeowner Elaine Noone, 64, was also arrested.

Houser is now in a Northampton County prison.
