At least fifteen containers filled with chemical waste were discovered dumped in the middle of a forest in Zeewolde, Flevoland Thursday morning, including a 20-liter barrel leaking an unknown substance. Police suspect the waste could be from an illegal meth lab.

The waste was found by a state forestry worker around 11:00am near the Nulderpad. Emergency responders were called in, with the fire department assisting in the disposal of the leaking barrel. Police say they are investigating "the content and origin of the vats."
