Two Lincklaen Residents Arrested for Manufacturing Meth

By FOX 40 Staff.
Two Lincklaen residents have been arrested for operating a meth lab out of their home.

On Wednesday at approximately 3:00 pm, members of the Chenango County Sheriff's Office arrested Allyssa R. Jackson, 29, and James R. Kelly, 28, after an investigation of the home where “one pot” methamphetamine cooks were located in plain view within burn piles as well as a gas mask in the yard.

After receiving information of a possible methamphetamine lab at 906 County Rd 13 in the Town of Lincklaen, members of the Sheriff’s Office responded to that location to perform a “knock and talk”.

While at the location they requested the assistance of the New York State Environmental Conservation Police due to burn piles at the residence. A search warrant was later issued for the residence where methamphetamine and paraphernalia were recovered.

Following the investigation, the two were arrested for Unlawful Manufacturing Methamphetamine, Unlawful Disposal of Methamphetamine Equipment, and Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance.

Both were arraigned in the Town of North Norwich Court and remanded to the Chenango County Correctional Facility on $20,000 cash bail.

The New York State Police CCSERT Team responded to the scene to assist with the investigation and provided cleanup of the hazardous material. The New York State Environmental Conservation Police also assisted in the investigation.
