BOONVILLE – A routine traffic stop led to two meth arrests in the village of Boonville Thursday morning.

Police say around 10:59 a.m. Thursday, they stopped a vehicle driven by 24-year-old Travis Williams of Port Leyden for tinted windows and inadequate exhaust. The vehicle was stopped on State Route 12, just north of the village line.

Police say during the stop they saw materials used for meth making in plain view, such as precursors, chemical reagents and solvents. The New York State Police CCSERT Team was called in to assist and dispose of the materials.

Williams is charged with felony third-degree unlawful manufacturing of methamphetamine and misdemeanor seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. He was sent to the Oneida County Jail on $7,500 cash bail.
