JASPER, NY (WENY) -- New York state police arrested two people after interrupting their meth-making operation in Jasper on Tuesday evening.
Police responded to a home on County Road 71, where authorities say they saw 45-year-old Mark Walton of Jasper, along with 22-year-old James Ball actively making methamphetamine. Both men are now charged with 3rd degree Unlawful Manufacture of Methamphetamine, and are now in the Steuben County jail.
A search warrant of Walton's home led to the seizure of a large amount of meth, as well as precursors, reagents, solvents, catalysts and lab equipment all used in the production of methamphetamine. That led to additional charges against each man, including 2nd and 7th degree Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance.
