Tips Lead to Sherburne Meth. Lab
Complaints from the community lead to the shut-down of a methamphetamine lab at a Sherburne Trailer.
Chenango County Sheriff’s officials responded to Classic Street shortly before 1 p-m Tuesday and attempted to make contact with the occupants. Authorities say they found Andrew J-J Palmer in the woods behind the trailer allegedly throwing meth manufacturing material into the woods.
Authorities say they found him in possession of Suboxone while several one-pot meth labs were found in the wood and in the home.
Palmer is charged with manufacturing meth, unlawful disposal of lab materials and criminal possession of a controlled substance.
He was sent to the Chenango County Jail on 15-thousand dollars bail.
The Village of Sherburne Police Department assisted in the investigation and the New York State Police hazardous material team responded to clean up the toxic materials at the trailer and in the woods.
