CLARK MILLS -- The Oneida County Sherriff’s Office executed the arrest warrant of a Clark Mills man Friday, for a felony probation violation.

James F. Cook, 47, of Clark Mills was wanted by the Fredricksburg Police Department in Virginia. Cook was believed to be living in a camper in the back yard of a home on 62 Pratt Ave in Clark Mills. According to Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol, Cook was apprehended inside his camper and items were discovered that were consistent with the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

The scene was secured and a search warrant for the camper was then obtained by the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics unit. The New York State Contaminated Crime Scene Emergency Response Team “CCSERT” team was called to assist with the investigation.

Sherriff Maciol says methamphetamine was recovered from inside the camper along with meth making materials. Cook was charged with unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine in the third degree, a class D Felony and criminal possession of a controlled substance in the 7th degree a class A Misdemeanor.


Cook was remanded to the Oneida County Jail on his probation violation and has other charges pending as well.
