Officers investigating the report of a stolen car in Leesburg may have also uncovered a drug production operation.

Leesburg police received an On-Star alert at 12:06 a.m. Friday, indicating a car reported stolen in Indiana was in the area.

Officers checked out the vehicle, parked near Clubhouse Drive.  The officers reported that a noxious odor was coming out of the car, and when they looked inside, they saw materials that looked like they could be used in a methamphetamine lab.  Police said they located two people associated with the car, a male and a female.

A HazMat crew was called for further investigation.

Officers proceeded to search a nearby apartment where the male and the female lived.  Inside the apartment, a substance believed to be methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia was found.
