CAMDEN, N.Y. (UPDATED) -- The Oneida County Sheriff's Office released new information on a fire at a Camden home Tuesday morning.
Deputies discovered what they believed to be methamphetamine manufacturing materials where the fire appeared to originate.
The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office and several fire departments responded to a reported house fire at 25 Preston St. around 7:25 a.m. Tuesday.
After finding the items, the residence was evacuated and Oneida County Sheriff's Office narcotics investigators responded to the scene.
New York State Police Contaminated Crime Scene Emergency Response Team (CCSERT) was also called in due to the potential for hazardous and volatile materials inside the residence.
Investigators searched the residence and discovered multiple one-pot methamphetamine manufacturing vessels -- some of which were still actively producing methamphetamine -- along with lithium, muriatic acid, solvents, numerous pieces of laboratory equipment, pseudoephedrine, ammonium nitrate and hydrogen chloride gas generators.
Investigators identified multiple suspects, including one who was just arrested and charged with burglary on March 3. That suspect was released in accordance with bail reform, and is due back in court at a later date.
Due to the New York State discovery procedures put in place this year, narcotics investigators cannot make an arrest on this investigation until the district attorney reviews the evidence. If the case goes to grand jury and they believe there is sufficient evidence, warrants will be issued for the suspects.
