A 36 year old Lowville man is going to prison for making methamphetamine.
Anthony Pickel was sentenced in Lewis County Court to two-and-a-half years behind bars and one year post release supervision.
He pleaded guilty in November to third-degree manufacturing meth, unlawful disposal of meth lab material, fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.
Pickel was arrested April 5 during a raid at a Keener Hill Road home in the town of Martinsburg. Police said they found the three people inside had just finished cooking meth and were burning waste from the process.
Police said they removed more than 20 items for meth manufacturing, including a “one pot” gas generator, acid, salt, ephedrine, and grinders. About three grams of meth were also seized.
