SPRINGVILLE, Iowa -- An attempt by police to stop a vehicle in Mt. Vernon overnight turned into a chase that led to the discovery of a mobile methamphetamine lab.

The Linn County Sheriff confirms that officers pursued the vehicle to Springville where it crashed into a ditch in the 500 block of 1St Avenue. Officers then discovered the meth making equipment inside the vehicle. Authorities say the driver, a woman, fled the scene but was captured later.

Haz-Mat crews are on the scene in Springville cleaning up the scene. More information from authorities, including the identification of the driver, will be coming later.
