DEC police find meth-making materials during wildlife search in Schuyler, Seneca counties

Earlier this month DEC police joined other law enforcement agencies in what’s known as a ‘meth dump’ detail.

It took place across several counties in the Finger Lakes.

Illegal meth-making materials unlawfully dumped outdoors can pose a tremendous risk to the public, wildlife, and the environment.

Unsuspecting individuals or animals that come across the material can be severely injured or even killed.


It’s a major problem.

The detail worked across Schuyler and Steuben counties. But, Seneca and Tioga were also included in a partner detail.

Officers located material at the Coon Hollow State Forest in Schuyler County, including a hydrogen chloride (HCI) gas generator, which is used as a reactionary chamber to produce HCI. A State Police hazmat team safely removed the materials.

The investigation remains active.
