SIDNEY, N.Y. -- A Hartwick man was arrested this week, accused of making methamphetamine in a New Lisbon home.

According to the Otsego County Sheriff’s Office, Anthony J. Pagillo, 32, was arrested Wednesday after deputies received a complaint from a homeowner in New Lisbon.

The homeowner told deputies that the suspect, who had been living in a bedroom in the home, may have had drug paraphernalia in his bedroom.

Deputies responded to the home on Nov. 26 and found chemicals and equipment used to make meth in the suspect’s bedroom.

A search warrant was obtained, and the New York State Police Contaminated Crime Scene Emergency Response Team (CCSERT) was called to help with the collection of evidence.

CCSERT agents found several items in the bedroom including pseudoephedrine, reagents, solvents, and equipment used to make meth.

The suspect was not at the home when the search warrant was executed.

Pagillo was found and arrested Wednesday in the village of Sidney, and charged with one felony count of unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine.

He is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 4 at 4 p.m.
