Two people from the Town of Bath have been arrested for the manufacture of methamphetamines.
Anthony Cagle, 29, and Danielle Smith, 24, of Campbell Creek Road were arrested on June 7, after a joint investigation by State Police and Steuben County Child Protection Services.
They have been charged with one count each of Unlawful Manufacture of Methamphetamine 3rd Degree (a class “D” felony) and Endangering the Welfare of a Child (a class “A” misdemeanor).
Investigators have alleged that between June 4 and June 7, Cagle and Smith manufactured, possessed, and used methamphetamine while inside their residence.
A child abuse report was received by CPS alleging the production and use of methamphetamine around children inside the home.
An immediate joint investigation was initiated and, subsequent to interviewing the couple at their home, a search warrant was executed at their residence which located: a completed “one-pot” style meth lab, multiple items of laboratory equipment, reagents, solvents and catalysts used in the clandestine production of the drug, precursor chemicals, multiple items of drug smoking paraphernalia, an assortment of containers with various quantities of finished-product methamphetamine, a burn barrel where expended items were incinerated, and over four hundred dollars in cash.
The New York State Police Contaminated Crime Scene Emergency Response Team (C.C.S.E.R.T) responded to the residence and remediated the site to ensure safe removal of any hazardous chemicals.
Cagle and Smith were arraigned in Town of Bath Court and remanded to the Steuben County Jail on $2500cash bail or $50,000 bond. They are set to reappear on June 11, 2018. Future charges are forthcoming pending the results of laboratory testing of evidence found at the scene.
