A traffic stop leads police to a meth lab as the suspect runs from police.

It began late yesterday when state police pulled over a vehicle on Upper Front Street.

Police stopped the car because the people inside weren't wearing seatbelts.

After the vehicle stopped, the passenger jumped out and ran from police.

Other police, K-9 units and a helicopter were all called in to look for the suspect.

About an hour later, police spotted the suspect near Wallace and Johnson roads west of Front Street.

After a foot chase, police arrested Donald Calabrese of Endicott.

Police say he was wanted by the Endicott Police Department.

During the investigation, police also found a portable meth lab in the back of the vehicle.

The car was registered to Lisa Gennett of Endicott.

During the investigation, two police officers were exposed to some chemicals from the meth lab and were treated at Wilson Hospital.
