Two area residents are facing a slew of charges following a vehicle stop in the town of Pomfret by New York State troopers Wednesday evening that resulted in the discovery of a mobile meth lab and counterfeit money.
Troopers pulled over a maroon Saturn traveling on Webster Road in the town. Upon the discovery, the New York State Contaminated Crime Scene Emergency Response Team conducted a search and collected evidence.
Following an investigation, Jodi L. Denmead, 54, of Brocton, and Jeffrey A. Schermerhorn, 34, of Westfield, were subsequently charged with first-degree possession of a forged instrument for counterfeit money allegedly found in the car, second-degree criminal use of drug paraphernalia, third-degree manufacturing of methamphetamine, a felony, unlawful possession of marijuana and a controlled substance not in its original container.
In addition, Denmead was charged with driving while intoxicated by drugs.
