Four arrested in Cortland meth lab bust


Four people were arrested in Cortland County Sunday morning on charges related to methamphetamine production, the Cortland County Sheriff’s Office said.

Law enforcement went on Saturday night to an address in Little York Crossing Road in the Town of Homer to find Stephanie Wiers, 24, who was wanted on a warrant for criminal possession of a controlled substance. Authorities found Wiers and Travis Hartwick, 26, who was also wanted on a warrant.

Authorities said they detected a smell similar to what’s produced in meth production, and arrested four people on the premises on suspicion of meth manufacturing.

After obtaining a search warrant the following morning, police located and seized several items used in meth manufacturing.

The defendants, including Robert Benson, 42, and Sarah Wacht, 31, are awaiting arraignment.
