SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Two men wanted in connection with a meth lab fire in Sioux Falls are now both in custody.
Authorities caught up with Ricky German Thursday afternoon at the Players Casino after fugitive task force officers were tipped off that he may be attempting to cash stolen checks at local casinos.
The other suspect, Ted Witte, was caught earlier on Thursday.
Authorities were called to a home at 233 South Duluth Avenue Sunday morning for a fire. While investigating, it was found that a meth lab started the fire.
Both men are wanted for distribution of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance in a drug-free area.
