Meth Lab Raid in Port Allegany

Meth Lab Raid in Port Allegany

Detectives from the McKean County District Attorney’s Office, McKean County Drug Task Force, and the Pennsylvania State Police Clandestine Laboratory Response Team raided a residence at 63 South Main Street in Port Allegany on the evening of March 14, 2012.

An active methamphetamine laboratory including precursor chemicals, pseudoephedrine, laboratory paraphernalia, and approximately two grams of finished crystal methamphetamine, was located inside and around the residence. Arrested was 23 year old Sara Jean Jones. Jones was charged with seven felony counts related to the manufacture of methamphetamine and disposal of chemicals in the manufacturing of methamphetamine. Jones was also charged with a felony count of risking a catastrophe and misdemeanor charges of reckless endangerment and drug possession.

The manufacturing of methamphetamine is extremely dangerous and involves the use of several toxic and explosive chemicals. Members of the Pennsylvania State Police Clandestine Laboratory Response Team donned protective gear including respirators and chemical suits in order to serve the search warrant on the residence. Also assisting in the operation were Port Allegany Police, McKean County Sheriff’s Department, Star Hose Company, Fire Police, and PennDOT.

“Methamphetamine is a highly addictive and destructive drug," said District Attorney Raymond R. Learn. "The manufacturing of methamphetamine is extremely dangerous and causes a public health and safety concern that must be addressed. We are focusing on methamphetamine laboratories and those who are purchasing the chemicals and over the counter medications necessary to manufacture methamphetamine. This stuff destroys lives and can kill innocent people and has to be stopped, and that is what we intend to do.”
