MOORE, Oklahoma -- After a several hour manhunt, Moore police arrested a man accused of stabbing his brother-in-law during a dispute.

According to a spokesperson with the department, 42-year-old Darrell Watkins called his sister asking her if she had money so he could buy chemicals needed to make meth.

"His sister said 'no,' and that's when Watkins came to his sister's house. His brother-in-law then came outside and was found stabbed and bleeding from his stomach," said Moore Police Sergeant Jeremy Lewis.

After more than two hours of searching, police said they were able to track down Watkins at an apartment complex located at S.E. 59th and High streets and take him into custody.

The victim was taken to a hospital in an unknown condition. The victim's identity is unknown.

Police said Watkins is being booked into the Cleveland County jail.
