Kathy Whyte/WNBF News

Another methamphetamine laboratory has reportedly been discovered in Central New York.

Cortland County Sheriff’s officials acted on a tip July 14 and say they found a man, living in a travel trailer, was using the vehicle parked on Route 221 to cook meth.

Police say a search of the residence turned up items used in the manufacture of methamphetamine as well as a small amount of marijuana.

45 year old James Homza Junior of Willet is charged with felony counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawful manufacturing of methamphetamine as well as lesser counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of marijuana.

Authorities called in a hazardous materials removal company to deal with waste generated from meth manufacture from the trailer and storage sheds.

Homza was sent to the Cortland County Jail on $10,000 bail.
