According to a press release from New York State Police Troop E Commander Major Richard Allen, Thomas Jacobs Jr., 39, is charged with felony Unlawful Manufacture of Methamphetamine in the Third Degree and Vehicle and Traffic Laws.
The arrest stemmed from an investigation into a domestic dispute that occurred at approximately 4:30 p.m. on March 17.
