CORTLAND, N.Y. — A Cortland man faces a felony charge of manufacturing methamphetamine after sheriff’s deputies found items used to make the drug inside his vehicle, the Cortland County Sheriff’s Office said.

At around 10:50 p.m. Monday, the sheriff’s office was dispatched to a property damage accident involving one vehicle on Kellogg Road in the town of Cortlandville.

The driver, 25-year-old Jacob D. Falso, of Cortland, was found to be in possession of several items used to manufacture methamphetamine, as well as a hypodermic instrument, authorities said.

The crash was the result of the driver failing to make a turn.

Falso was arrested at the scene and and transported to the Cortland County Public Safety Building for processing. He was charged with unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine, a Class C felony, and criminally possessing a hypodermic instrument, a class A misdemeanor.

Falso was arraigned in Cortlandville Town Court and remanded to the Cortland County Jail without bail. He was scheduled to appear in court earlier today.
