Investigators in Cayuga County made a large drug arrest last week following a tip from the public that led them to 53-year-old James Hall of Port Byron, who’s accused of attempting to receive a large quantity of methamphetamine through a parcel service.
Hall was arrested Friday (February 21) after the close of an extensive investigation the day prior, which also found him in possession of smaller quantities of meth on separate occasions.
His charges include a felony count of 2nd-Degree Attempted Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance, along with two misdemeanor counts of 7th-Degree Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance.
After being processed at the Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office, Hall was held until his arraignment and later released on his own recognizance.
The overarching investigation is still ongoing and anyone with information that could help authorities may contact Detective Blanchard at 315-253-3902, or anonymously at www.cayugasheriff.com.
Assisting with the investigation were members of the New York State Police, the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Finger Lakes Drug Task Force.
