Cortland Police arrested a man from the city for having the ingredients to make methamphetamine.

That’s a felony charge.

On Friday morning at about 8:30, parole officers visited the home of Harold Young, who is 52.

The parole officers brought in police after finding 22 pseudoephedrine capsules and five instant cold packs that contained ammonium nitrate.

Police say Young was sent to the Cortland County Jail without bail being set.

At about 1:45 am Saturday, Cortland Police arrested a man who had parked in front of the Dark Horse and agreed to take four people home for a fee.

Trouble is, Richard Schreffler, 64, of Cortland, didn’t have a taxi license.

Schreffler was also charged with reckless endangerment, obstruction of governmental administration, illegal parking and moving from a lane unsafely.

Officers say they were questioning Schreffler when he drove away. One officer still had his hand in the window.

Schreffler didn’t get far. He was ticketed and released until court on March 15.
