GOUVERNEUR -- Two Ogdensburg residents were jailed May 14 on meth-making charges following a traffic stop, according to Gouverneur police.

Natasha M. Petrie, 29, and James R. Petrie, 35, were each charged with third-degree manufacturing methamphetamine, and unlawful disposal of methamphetamine laboratory equipment material stemming from a May 2 incident, officers said.

The duo possessed meth-making materials May 2 at 112 William St. with intent to use, or knowing that another intends to use such product to unlawfully manufacture, prepare or produce methamphetamines, police said.

“They unlawfully disposed the methamphetamine lab material and knew that disposing or possessing with the intent to dispose of hazardous or dangerous material under circumstances create a substantial risk to human life,” officers said in a news release.

They were arraigned in Gouverneur court before Judge Travis Dann and remanded to the St. Lawrence County Correction Facility until a return court date.

The St. Lawrence County Sheriff Department’s Drug Task Force, Ogdensburg City Police Department and New York State Police helped with the arrest.

Natasha Petrie was also arrested on a bench warrant for failure to appear.

James Petrie was also arrested on a warrant for failure to appear for second-degree-aggravated unlicensed operation, unregistered motor vehicle, uninspected motor vehicle, uninsured motor vehicle, switched plates, and invalid inspection certificate.
