Two men from the Cortland area were arrested early Sunday (December 29) morning after they were found in possession of materials used to cook methamphetamine.
Deputies from the Cortland County Sheriff’s Office responded just past 3 a.m. to investigate two individuals who were walking the wrong way along Route 281, not far from the intersection with Cold Brook Road in Homer.
The subjects were identified as 47-year-old Terry Maricle, of Owego Street in Cortland, and 48-year-old Michael Martin Sr., of East River Road in Cortlandville, both of whom were found in possession of various materials used to manufacture methamphetamine.
Maracle was also found to have a small amount of the drug itself, along with an undisclosed amount of marijuana. Additionally, Martin was found with a hypodermic needle.
Both were hit with multiple charges, including a felony each for the meth-making materials.
They were arraigned in Homer Town Court and remanded to Cortland County Jail without bail, set to reappear January 7.
