DUNKIRK, N.Y. (WIVB) – Authorities in Dunkirk say they found out about a meth lab when a woman dropped it off to them at the police station.
The woman told officers the items in her truck came from a house in the Town of Sheridan. The drug task force and HAZ-MAT team had to come to remove the materials and decontaminate the truck and woman.
First responders say the items are too dangerous for most people to handle.
Dunkirk City Fire Lt. Gary Katta said, “Hazardous materials. It’s volatile. Right now we don’t know the amount of the substances that are in there. Any contact with the skin, you can become seriously sick. It’s a contamination hazard.”
After being decontaminated, the woman was brought to Brooks Memorial Hospital in Dunkirk for further treatment.
Authorities are now gathering additional evidence at the home on Straight Road.
