Police Search for Ambulance Escapee in Meth Case

WINONA, Minn. -- Police are searching for a man who allegedly escaped from an ambulance in Winona.

The man was found unconscious Saturday in a car full of chemicals that could be used to make methamphetamine.

Police say Tuesday that he is still on the run. Deputy Chief Paul Bostrack says narcotics investigators are following leads in the case.

Bostrack says the ambulance picked up the man Saturday afternoon, but the man got out of the ambulance and took off while it was stopped at a red light.

A professional cleanup crew from Chicago was called in to take care of the hazardous materials found in the car, which was parked at Daniels Ace Hardware in Winona.

The man's name hasn't been released.
