A 37-year-old Lockport woman is in police custody after being charged this morning with running a meth lab on Elmira Street.

According to Niagara County Sheriff Jim Voutour, the Niagara County Drug Task Force, along with the New York State Police Special Operations Response Team, executed the search warrant at 55 Elmira St., where it was suspected that methamphetamine was being manufactured.

Arrested at the residence was Jennifer J. McCabe, charged with second-degree unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine -- a felony. She is also facing three counts of first-degree unlawfully dealing with a child -- a Class A misdemeanor -- "because kids were living in a meth lab," Sheriff Voutour said. McCabe was held pending arraignment in the City of Lockport Court.

The arrest is part of a year and a half long investigation into the manufacture of methamphetamine in the City of Lockport area along with complaints from the public.

Thirty-four-year old Vincent McCabe was charged in March with manufacturing methamphetamines following a similar warrant on the same 55 Elmira St. home. He is currently out on bail from that charge, according to Sheriff Voutour. He was also arrested in November on a methamphetamines charge in North Tonawanda, where he took a plea to a D felony and a B misdemeanor. Sentencing on that case is slated for next month. Additional charges are now pending against Mr. McCabe from today's warrant, but he wasn't located, according to Sheriff Voutour.

The New York State Police Contaminated Crime Scene Emergency Response Team processed the scene due to the volatile nature of the by-products used in the manufacture of methamphetamine.

Voutour lauded their actions in "containing these volatile labs."
