Homer Man’s Roommate Turns Him in For Cooking Meth

Kathy Whyte/ WNBF News

Cortland County Sheriff’s officials say they have shut down a methamphetamine lab after a roommate of the suspect found what appeared to be a suspicious container in the attached garage of the Town of Homer residence they shared.

Deputies arrested 43 year old Michael Martin, Sr. at the East River Road Home at around 10 a.m. May 12 after finding several items used in the manufacture of meth, mainly using the one-pot method.

Officials say they confiscated 13 gas generators and 4 one-pot meth labs.

The New York State Police Contaminated Crime Scene Response Team was called in to deal with the toxic chemicals used in cooking meth.  The Environmental Protection Service, Homer Fire Department, Truxton Fire and Rescue and the Cortland City Hazardous Material Response Team were also called out.

Martin is charged with felony counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance, unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine and unlawful disposal of methamphetamine laboratory material.  He was also charged with misdemeanor criminal possession of a hypodermic instrument.

Martin was sent to the Cortland County Jail without bail.
