Three Arrested in Cortland Meth Bust

Kathy Whyte/ WNBF News

Cortland County Sheriff’s officials say three people are in custody after authorities got a tip regarding subjects acting suspiciously in the City of Cortland.

Deputies responded to the area on Clinton Avenue between Charles Street and Church Street at 7:50 p.m. August 26 and called for assistance from the Cortland City Police.

When a uniformed officer and the investigator approached the three, one ran off and was found hiding on a porch a short distance away by sheriff’s deputies and city police.

The other two were detained at the scene.

Officials say they determined the suspects were carrying backpacks containing one active and one spent “One Pot” meth lab as well as components for the manufacture of methamphetamine. 27 year old Holdan Hayes, 22 year old Nicohlas Baldassarre and 23 year old Jacquelyn Scott all gave no address.

The activity, including the removal of toxic materials resulted in the closing of the area for about three hours and residents were told to stay inside.

Hayes is charged with felony unlawful manufacturing methamphetamine and misdemeanor counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance, obstructing governmental administration and criminal possession of a hypodermic needle.

Baldassarre and Scott are each charged with felony unlawful manufacture of meth and misdemeanor criminal possession of a controlled substance.

The investigation is continuing.
