Meth Lab Found In Elmira Residence

If you were trying to drive down West Gray Street, Davis, or Columbia Street in Elmira yesterday, you may have found it difficult. But that's probably for the best, because according to our news partners at YNN, Elmira police have arrested two people as an investigation is continuing into meth production in the city. Authorities searched a home on West Gray Street Friday, as well as the garage behind the home. The Sheriff's office says they found a meth lab at the site.



Police had the street closed from Davis to Columbia Street as they searched for evidence and made sure the area was safe. The production of meth involves many chemicals, which can be dangerous if touched or inhaled.

A woman at the home, 26-year old Kimberly Bennett was wanted for petit larceny. She was processed and released.

A man at the scene, 43-year old Jamie Lawson was also arrested and charged with second degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and was sent to the Chemung County Jail without bail.

An investigation is continuing and police expect more charges to be filed.
