NORWICH – Three people were arraigned in Chenango County Court this week for allegedly possessing and manufacturing meth in Greene.
47-year-old Carmine P. Pezzino II of Greene, 27-year-old Cody A. Bush of Windsor and 26-year-old Heather M. Clark (a.k.a. Heather M. Gumaer) of Johnson City were arrested on Oct. 10, 2014 at approximately 7 p.m. by the Village of Greene Police Department and the New York State Police for crimes related to possessing and manufacturing meth following the execution of a search warrant by the NYSP CCERT Team.
Authorities said the alleged items used to manufacture the meth were “outside and in plain view” at a Chenango Street residence in Greene, two-tenths of a mile from the Greene Central School District.
Pezzino was initially the only one charged with a felony and remanded to the Chenango County Correctional Facility without bail.
On March 18, Pezzino, Bush and Clark were indicted on the charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree, a class B felony, and unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine in the third degree, a class D felony.
It is alleged on or about Oct. 10, 2014 at a South Chenango Street residence in the Village of Greene, Pezzino, Bush and Clark – while acting in concert with others – possessed a glass vial containing liquid methamphetamine, which had an aggregated weight of 17.2 grams (one-half ounce or more).
It is also alleged that Pezzino, Bush and Clark possessed ephedrine, sulfuric acid, sodium hydroxide, ammonium nitrate, lithium metal, Coleman fuels, mason jars, tubing, 2 liter bottle and coffee filters to unlawfully manufacture methamphetamine.
