Cambria woman charged after meth lab found in home

Niagara County Sheriff's deputies arrested a Cambria woman after discovering a meth lab in a home on Friday.

The sheriff's office received a call Friday morning reporting possible methamphetamine 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.

Leah McCabe, 34, Cambria, 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.
