A man wanted in connection with a methamphetamine lab that exploded in Bethlehem earlier this month has turned himself in to authorities.

Jeffrey Caulfield, 28, surrendered Thursday, police said. He was committed to the Northampton County Prison on $100,000 bail.

Police were preparing to search a home with a suspected meth lab at 1965 Greenleaf St. on March 8, but an explosion rocked the home just hours before the scheduled search, police said. Seven people, including two police officers, were hurt in the blast.


Police were looking for several people in connection with the meth lab.

Homeowner Elaine Noone, 64, was arrested Monday and released on $75,000 unsecured bail.

Suspect Davina Bowler, 39, was arraigned Tuesday and committed to the Northampton County Prison on  $15,000 bail.

Caulfield faces charges of operating a methamphetamine laboratory and related offenses.

An arrest warrant is still outstanding for another man, 39-year-old Daniel James Houser.


Police said they've learned that Houser now has shorter hair than in the photograph. He no longer has a ponytail and suffered burns to his face, lips, arms and right leg as a result of the explosion, police said.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Houser should call Bethlehem police at 610-865-7187 or Detective Vasvari at 610-865-7129.
