      Five people are charged after an anonymous tip led Cortland County Sheriff??s Deputies to a meth lab in the Town of Cortlandville.

      Deputies were called to 9 Penguin Drive on Tuesday, and upon arrival found five people, four of whom said they lived at the home. After initial questioning, the people were taken to the sheriff??s department for further questioning. While taking them into custody, deputies found meth on two of the suspects.

      Deputies returned with a search warrant and found evidence that supported an active meth lab in the home. There was not active meth manufacturing going on, so neighbors were not in danger, according to deputies.

      Environmental Services was called in from Syracuse to assist in the clean-up of the hazardous material found in the home.
