Two Waterloo residents have been arrested for manufacturing methamphetamine.
Sheriff’s deputies in Seneca County tell News10NBC they began a joint investigation with State Police and the Waterloo Police Department after they received a complaint from the Waterloo Department of Public Works that garbage collected from a home on Thurber Drive exploded in the garbage truck.
On Tuesday, investigators executed a search warrant at the Thurber Drive home and say they found numerous items related to the manufacturing of methamphetamine. News10NBC is also told three children were home at the time.
The residents, Jamie Murphy, 37 and 32-year-old Rachelle Murphy, are charged with unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine and three counts of unlawfully dealing with a child.
Both are being held in the Seneca County Correctional Facility in lieu of bail. Stay away orders of protection were issued preventing both suspects from having contact with the children. They are both due in court on September 23.
