VERNON, CT (WFSB) -

Police responded to a McDonald's in Vernon on Thursday afternoon for a reported hazmat situation.

Connecticut State Police said troopers were looking for a van that was "overdue" arriving at its destination in the McDonald's parking lot.

As police approached, they said they saw a large amount of chemicals in the van.

Police said fire officials, DEEP and the DEA became involved, as it potentially could have been a meth lab.

The chemicals are being analyzed to determine if they were for making narcotics.

No further information was released by police.
