We present Spitzer Space Telescope imaging observations at 3.6, 4.5, 5.8, 8.0, and 24 μm of the SCUBA submillimeter sources and μJy VLA radio sources in a 5'×5' area in the Lockman Hole East region. Out of the ~40 SCUBA/VLA sources in the field, Spitzer counterparts were detected for nearly all except for the few low-weight SCUBA detections. We show that the majority (80%-90%) of the detected sources are cold (i.e., starburst-like) infrared-luminous galaxies (LIR>1011 Lsolar) at redshift 0.5
