Police arrested three people after finding several one-pot methamphetamine laboratories in an apartment on Syracuse Avenue in Oswego.
37 year-old Frederick Carvey III and 32 year-old Zechariah Morrison face charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine, both felonies. Carvey was also arrested for a bench warrant out of Oswego County Drug Court. 23 year-old Brittaney Perkins is charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
At around 9:15 Wednesday morning, Oswego City Police responded to information that a possible meth lab was operating out of 196 Syracuse Avenue. Police spoke with the residents there and found further evidence of the lab.
Police then closed off Syracuse Ave. between South Division Street and Lawrence Street to car and pedestrian traffic and secured the residence. The Oswego County Fire Department was called to decontaminate the residents and protect against possible fires or explosions.
Police said a search warrant was obtained through the Oswego City Court. The search revealed several one-pot or "Shake and Bake" meth labs and associated materials. More than 10 ounces of methamphetamine oil were also found.
Carvey and Morrison are being held in jail pending arraignment in Oswego City Court. Perkins was issued an appearance ticket for January 2 and turned over to Fulton City Police for an outstanding bench warrant.
