Seneca Falls (WSYR-TV) – A homeless couple from Louisiana has been arrested for allegedly manufacturing meth on a Seneca County resident’s property.
According to the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office, 30-year-old Annilace Wills and 38-year-old Rick Currier arrived in the town of Seneca Falls on July 29 after leaving Louisiana and began living with a resident. They were asked to leave after a dispute with the host of the Porter Street residence, however, and Sheriff’s Deputies believe the two were living on the streets of Seneca Falls.
They say the owner of the home on Porter Street became suspicious after noticing drug paraphernalia in the garbage and subsequently called the Sheriff’s Office.
Several law-enforcement agencies visited the Porter Street residence and found equipment and chemicals used in manufacturing methamphetamine.
Sheriff’s Deputies found Wills and Currier at the Seneca County Department of Social Services where they were applying for emergency housing. They were taken into custody without incident.
The Sheriff’s Office’s investigation revealed that the pair had allegedly cooked methamphetamine in a wooded area in the town of Seneca Falls. They believe the couple was manufacturing the drug for their own use and not for sale to other users.
Wills and Currier were charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance in the second degree and unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine in the third degree, both felonies.
They were arraigned in Seneca Falls Town Court and taken to the Seneca County Correctional Facility in lieu of $50,000 cash bail or $100,000 bond. They are scheduled to return to court on Aug. 17, 2012.
