Early Tuesday morning, investigators with the Cortland County Sheriff's Department say they saw a car on Port Watson Street with "insufficient headlights."
The responding officer smelled a strong chemical odor coming from inside the vehicle. The driver, Kristan Cowen, 37, of Meadville, Pennsylvania has a revoked license. The officer reports finding several components used for manufacturing methamphetamine.
A search of the car turned up three-quarters of an ounce of methamphetamine along with a "One pot" used for cooking meth, as well as a loaded 25 caliber semi-automatic pistol.
Cowen was charged with Felony Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance, Criminal Possession of a weapon, Unlawful manufacturing of methamphetamine, and other charges related to his license and headlamp. He's jailed on $15,000 cash, $30,000 bond.
