Four Charged in Tompkins County Meth Investigation
Four people were arrested after a purported methamphetamine production site was discovered in the Tompkins County town of Groton.
Authorities say police received a report of people making meth in an apartment building on School Street in McLean on October 17.
State police say troopers found an active meth lab in one apartment. They seized one ounce of methamphetamine oil and one gram of meth powder. They also confiscated equipment and chemicals believed to have been used to make the drug.
The four suspects taken into custody were charged with unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine, a felony.
Those arrested were: 31-year-old Ashlie Bowen and 25-year-old Wyatt Bowen, both of McLean; 48-year-old Marlin Washburn of Ithaca; and 31-year-old John Dean of Burdett.
All four were being held in Tompkins County Jail after they were arraigned in Groton town court.
