One-Pot Meth Lab in Whitney Point Shut Down
New York State Police say they seized a ‘one-pot’ methamphetamine lab and arrested the homeowner in Whitney Point.
At around 2 p.m. March 25th, 50 year old Erik Muller was stopped by a trooper acting on information obtained through the State Police Community Narcotics Enforcement Team.
At Muller’s request, a trooper accompanied him as his vehicle was towed back to his house.
The trooper said, at the Edridge Road home, numerous items consistent with the manufacture of methamphetamine were in plain view.
Authorities say the one-pot method of cooking meth is a way of producing the drug in small amounts in as little as thirty minutes and without using anhydrous ammonia.
Muller is charged with felony unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine, criminal possession of a controlled substance and two counts of criminally using drug paraphernalia.
He was sent to the Broome County Jail without bail.
State Police say their investigation is continuing.
