The growing number of mobile methamphetamine labs is on the rise. And it has some victims of crime, worried about their safety.

Just last week a rolling meth lab was found in the back of a stolen pick-up truck. The vehicle belonged to a Sand Springs woman. Lori Cobb says she's worried about the hazardous chemicals that may be left behind. The chemicals are flammable, and can linger for a long time. Cobb says she hopes her insurance company will clean her truck thoroughly. "We have toddlers, we have little kids, and we want to make sure their safety's okay. Innocent people get affected everyday and we don't ask for this, but somebody has to do it and I feel that we're not at fault to cover the cost."

Police say the clean up for Cobb may require her to take her truck to someone who specializes in environmental spills.
