A traffic stop last week ultimately led to the arrest of a pair of local men charged with running a meth lab.
Jason C. Donah, 32, and Kelly D. Meseck, 33, both of Plattsburgh, were charged with third-degree unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine, a felony, according to New York State Police.
Police made a traffic stop earlier in the day on Route 22. Two unidentified men were not arrested but “precursors to the production of methamphetamine were located in the vehicle,” according to a press release from New York State police.
Law enforcement obtained a search warrant for 4009 State Route 22 and collected evidence there with the assistance of the State Police Contaminated Crime Scene Emergency Response Team, also arresting Donah and Meseck.
Donah and Meseck were arraigned in Town of Plattsburgh Court and remanded to Clinton County Jail on $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond.
Further charges are pending.
State Police has been conducting several investigations in the manufacture and sale of methamphetamine in Clinton County and requesting help from the public.
Police said to look for larger amounts than usual of the following items associated with methamphetamine: pseudoephedrine (Sudafed), Coleman camping fuel, Drano, acetone, lye, rubber tubing, lithium batteries, coffee filters and ice packs.
The items are often found with each other when used to manufacture methamphetamine.
Anyone with information about suspicious activity or who knows about use of the drug should contact the New York State police at 897-2000.
