Cops: ‘Several complaints' led to Sherburne mobile-home meth arrest

SHERBURNE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - A Sherburne man is facing charges after police walked in on him allegedly trying to dump meth manufacturing materials in the woods on Tuesday.

The Chenango County Sheriff’s Office says “several community complaints” about alleged methamphetamine manufacturing led them to investigate a mobile home on 30 Classic St. in the village of Sherburne.

When investigators arrived at the home around 12:50 p.m., they reportedly found 19-year-old Andrew J.J. Palmer in the woods, along with several “one-pot” devices.

Investigators say they also discovered that Palmer was in possession of suboxone, and that they found more one-pot devices in the home.

They also say they recovered five ounces of methamphetamine, along with multiple ingredients for making meth.

A State Police hazmat team joined Deputies at the scene, and cleaned up the woods and the residence.

Palmer has been charged with:
-          Third-degree unlawful manufacturing of methamphetamine
-          Unlawful disposal of methamphetamine laboratory equipment
-          Seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance

He was arraigned in Sherburne Village Court and taken to the Chenango County jail in lieu of $15,000 cash bail.
