      Mobile meth lab pulled over in Fayette, three arrested

      Three Waterloo men were arrested after their mobile meth lab was pulled over for a violation in the Town of Fayette.

      Deputies say they stopped a vehicle for an equipment violation on Route 96 in the Town of Fayette earlier this month and were interviewing the occupants of the vehicle when they smelled marijuana.

      The deputies then searched the vehicle, which they are describing as a "mobile methamphetamine lab," and found items related to production of methamphetamine.

      After further investigation, deputies found that the occupants were allegedly on their way to a remote location to cook and manufacture methamphetamine.

      24-year-old Joshua D. Norcott, 24-year-old Jonathan D. Molina, and 26-year-old Nhoy S. Khounpachamsy were charged with unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine, a felony.

      Molina and Khounpachamsy were remanded to the Seneca County Correctional Facility on $5,000 bail or $10,000 bond. All three men are expected to return to court this month.
