DANSVILLE — An investigation into a domestic dispute in the town of Dansville resulted in the arrest of a Thomas Jacobs Jr., 39, of Oak Hill Road.
On March 17 at about 4:30 p.m. the investigation resulted in meth-related charges against a Dansville man. Troopers assigned to the Wayland and N. Hornell barracks were initially dispatched to a private residence on Oak Hill Rd. in the Town of Dansville, and in conjunction with that investigation, conducted a vehicle stop on SR36, also in the Town of Dansville.
The operator of the vehicle, Jacobs, Jr., who’s driving privileges had previously been suspended, was found to be in possession of lab equipment, precursors, chemical reagents, and solvents – all of which are commonly used in the production of methamphetamine.
Jacobs was charged with third-degree Unlawful Manufacture of Methamphetamine, as well as Vehicle & Traffic Law charges. He was subsequently arraigned in the Town of Dansville Court and remanded to the Steuben Co. Jail without bail. He is scheduled to reappear in the Town of Dansville Court at a later date.
