Cortland Man Indicted on Charges For Union Street Meth Lab
A Cortland man who was arrested by police back in May after a meth lab was found in his Union Street apartment has been indicted by a Cortland County Grand Jury.
30 year old Joshua Marshall of 34 Union Street, Cortland was in Cortland County Court Thursday where he was arraigned on two felony counts of unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine along with two felony counts of possessing a controlled substance.
Marshall’s attorney Keith Dayton entered not guilty pleas on his behalf and he was sent to the Cortland County Jail on $10 thousand dollars cash bail or $20 thousand dollars bond; he has posted the bond and is currently out of jail.
Marshall along with 28 year old Matthew Stone of 2367 Parks Road, and 22 year old Savannah Webster of Green Lake Road, Homer were all arrested after Cortland City Firefighters responded to the Union Street apartment for a possible house fire. Inside investigators found a functioning meth lab. Police later removed a quantity of the drug from the house.
Stone was in court last week where he pled guilty to felony charges of criminal sale of a controlled substance and unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine as part of a plea deal to settle his case.
In exchange for the guilty pleas prosecutors have recommend Stone serve 5 ½ years in state prison with four years of post release supervision.
Stone will be sentenced in September.
