Cortlandville Man Busted With Mobile Meth Lab in His Car
A Cortlandville man is facing charges after he was found with a mobile meth lab in his vehicle during a traffic stop Saturday.
Just after 1 o'clock Saturday morning a Cortland County Sheriff’s Deputy on patrol on Starr Road in the Town of Cortlandville stopped a vehicle driven by 24 year old Casey Chorley of Conable Ave.
During the stop it was determined that Chorley has a suspended drivers license, the Deputy also observed several items in the vehicle that are used in the manufacturing of the drug methamphetamine.
A search of the car revealed an active meth lab, the New York State Police CCERT team along with a Hazard material clean up company responded to remove the hazardous materials.
Chorley was charged a Felony count of manufacturing methamphetamine and criminal possession of a controlled substance. Chorley was also ticketed for obstructed view and aggravated unlicensed operation.
Chorley was arraigned in the Town of Cortlandville Court and remanded to the Cortland County Jail on $25,000 cash, $50,000 bond. He is due back in court today.
Chorley was recently arrested along with 14 other individuals as part of an investigation into the sales of the over the counter cold medicines containing the drug pseudoephedrine. The active ingredient is a component in the manufacture of meth. County Lawmakers passed a law last year regulating the sales of the medication as part of an effort to combat meth production.
As the investigation continues additional charges will be forthcoming.
