(WKTV) - Two Rome residents face charges in connection to methamphetamine manufacture, the Oneida County Sheriff's Office said.

Anthony P. Armstrong, 47, of the 6000 block of Lamphear Road in Rome, and Corie L. Edwards, 35, of Anken Street in Rome, are charged with unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine in the the third degree and criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree.

According to authorities, on Friday, members of the New York State Police S.O.R.T. Team, Oneida County Sheriff's Office SWAT Team, Oneida County Sheriff's Criminal Investigation/Narcotics Unit and the New York State Police Contaminated Crime Scene Response Team executed a search warrant at a home on Lamphear Road. The search warrant was the result of a five-month investigation into the sale and possession of methamphetamine at the address.

The home had been investigated before, and a search warrant was executed there in December. At that time, Armstrong and others were arrested.

The Oneida County Sheriff's Office Patrol Division, the Rome Fire Department and the City of Rome Codes Department assisted at the scene.
