An investigation is underway after New York police found a methamphetamine lab in a sewer underneath a Walmart parking lot Monday afternoon.

"The State Police SORT Team is what came out. We brought them in. They did a fantastic job collecting, photographing the scene and bringing the items out here," said Amherst Police Capt. Scott Chamberlin.

Police say officers on routine patrol found chemicals and other items used to make meth in the underground culvert. Officers say the culvert is tall enough for a person to stand up in.

Police plan on looking at surveillance video from the Walmart parking lot to see if they can come up with any suspects, and they assure people that there is no reason to be worried about dangerous chemicals. (WGRZ)
