DANSVILLE — An investigation into a domestic dispute led to meth-related charges against a Dansville man.
At approximately 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, Wayland and North Hornell-based New York State Police were dispatched to a private residence on Oak Hill Road in the Town of Dansville to conduct a domestic dispute investigation.
In an attempt to locate a party to the alleged dispute, troopers conducted a vehicle stop on state Route 36, also in the Town of Dansville. The operator of the vehicle, Thomas J. Jacobs, Jr., 39, of 10528 Oak Hill Road, Dansville, who’s driving privileges had previously been suspended, was found to be in possession of lab equipment, precursors, chemical reagents, and/or solvents — all of which are commonly used in the production of methamphetamine.
According to investigators, Jacobs was allegedly transporting the supplies at the time, and the vehicle was not being used as a mobile lab.
No completed drugs were seized following a search of the car and Jacobs' residence on Oak Hill.
Jacobs was charged with third-degree unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine, class-D felony, as well as vehicle and 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.
Investigators said that the incident is pending further investigation, and that additional arrests are expected in relation to the case.
