A Homer teen arrested in connection with a meth lab found in a local trailer park has been sentenced in Cortland County Court.
Back in April, Cortland County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to 15 Kingsley Ave. lot # 15.
While interviewing a resident there officers detected a strong chemical smell coming from at the home.
The odor was consistent with a meth lab. A search of the home turned up a lab.
Police say they fumes and smoke inside the home were so strong they evacuated people from the home.
20-year-old Amber Reynolds of that address, was charged with unlawfully manufacturing methamphetamine in the third degree, class D felony and unlawful disposal of methamphetamine laboratory material, a class E felony.
19 year old Thomas Joseph and 29 year old Amanda Maphis, both of 3007 Rt 13 East Homer, who had been inside the home were also charged with felony counts of unlawfully manufacturing methamphetamine and unlawful disposal of methamphetamine laboratory material.
Yesterday, Joseph was sentenced to six months in jail and 5 years probation.
He previously plead guilty to the manufacturing charge. Joseph has already served the jail time and was released following sentencing.
