Second arrest made Monday in Cambria meth lab case

A Cambria man was arrested Monday in connection with a meth lab found in a Saunders Settlement Road home on Friday.

After being found on Military Road in the Town of Tonawanda, Thomas W. McCabe III, 36, was arrested on a warrant charging him with third-degree manufacturing of methamphetamine, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawfully dealing with a child.

McCabe was taken into custody by members of the Niagara County Warrant Unit, Violent Felony Task Force and Immigrations and Customs Enforcement. He was arrested without incident.

The sheriff’s office received a call Friday morning reporting possible meth being produced at 4980 Saunders Settlement Road.

Upon arrival, Deputy Ray Tracy and investigators from the Niagara County Drug Task Force found items commonly used for making meth and an active meth lab near the home’s furnace.

The home was immediately evacuated and New York State Police were contacted to send its Contaminated Crime Scene Emergency Response Team which cleared out the home and secured all hazardous material.

Thomas McCabe's wife, Leah McCabe, 34, was charged with third-degree unlawful manufacturing of meth, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawfully dealing with a child.

An investigation is continuing and further charges are pending.
