Deputies say the eight-month-long investigation was closed April 19 when 53-year-old John Hofmeister and 42-year-old Jennifer Shaughnessy, both of Creek Road in Lincoln, were arrested.

Hofmeister and Shaughnessy are accused of possessing methamphetamine, meth lab equipment and several plastic bottles containing meth oils. Deputies say the two also unlawfully disposed of the meth materials by burning them in a burn barrel behind their home.

Hofmeister and Shaughnessy are each charged with felony second-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, felony third-degree manufacturing methamphetamine, felony unlawful disposal of methamphetamine lab materials, and misdemeanor seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

They were arraigned in the Village of Chittenango Court and sent to the Madison County Jail on $10,000 cash bail or $20,000 bond. They’re scheduled to appear in the Town of Lincoln Court on May 3.
