Police: suspicious chemicals found near home in Mt. Pleasant

Posted: Updated:

Police say suspicious chemicals were found near a home near the Old Village area of Mount Pleasant.

Authorities responded to Fairmont Avenue near Coleman Boulevard around 6:00 Saturday evening.

Original reports said officers, firefighters and a hazmat team reported to calls of a possible meth lab. Authorities, however, would not comment on whether or not the chemicals could be used to make meth.

Police also say a woman, who was visiting from out of town, is suspected of leaving behind the chemicals. Authorities are looking for that woman, who is suspected to no longer be in the Mount Pleasant area.

Officers said these type of calls don't happen often in Mount Pleasant .

"This is very rare for Mount Pleasant," Lieutenant Pat Carter said. "We don't deal with chemicals that much, so that's why we always like to make sure it's handled properly with the proper authorities, like Hazmat."

No injuries were reported. At this time, no charges have been filed.
