Town of Chenango, NY (WBNG Binghamton) New York State Police discover a mobile meth lab using a method of manufacturing called "one-pot." According to investigators it's a method that is dangerous and highly explosive.

Following a two month investigation, the New York State Police Community Narcotics Enforcement Team searched two vehicles and a home in the Town of Chenango.

Brian Russell, 32, and Jacob Parr, 24, both of Johnson City were in a vehicle stopped on River Road Tuesday. State police said they found a mobile methamphetamine lab and a significant amount of meth oil.

 The same day they stopped Dane Ellis, 32, of Chenango Bridge on River Road. Troopers searched both his vehicle and his residence on Green Meadow Lane where they found meth oil and other components to manufacture methamphetamine.

CNET noted both operations indicated the use of the "one-pot" method which allows meth cooks to make small amounts of the drug in 30 minutes.

Meth manufacturing involves the use of anhydrous ammonia which was commonly stolen from farms. With the "one-pot" method, cooks obtain enough anhydrous ammonia through several over the counter products.

Russell, Parr and Ellis were arraigned on charges of unlawful manufacture and possession of methamphetamine in Town of Chenango Court. Russell was also charged with vehicle and traffic violations.
