Springfield police are investigating a suspected meth lab-- and say the evidence came to their doorstep.
Springfield Police Chief Doug Johnston says Thursday night a woman showed up at the police department and asked an officer to check out items in her trunk. She told police she suspected people staying with her were involved in drug activity. Police say the woman collected the suspicious items from her home and drove them to the station. Turns out the materials were part of a meth lab. Authorities say the Vermont State Police clandestine team, hazmat crews and the fire department were called in to neutralize the chemicals.
Friday, police searched the home on Poplar Street. They say it's safe to live in. And no nearby homes are in danger. No charges have been filed yet.
