Huge Crystal Meth Haul in Norwich
Chenango County Sheriff’s officials are showing off a table loaded down with drugs and money nabbed following a long investigation into the distribution of crystal methamphetamine and cocaine in the area.
Thirty-four-year-old Corey Weidman and 22-year-old Cheyanne Moore were arrested at 5:30 a.m. December 17 during the execution of a no-knock search warrant at an apartment on East Main Street in the City of Norwich.
Authorities recovered close to four pounds (1.8 kilograms) of crystal meth, three ounces of cocaine, 4.5 ounces of marijuana, LSD, Molly and Suboxone strips as well as a loaded handgun, a vehicle and $35,625.
Deputies say Weidman had to be taken Chenango Memorial hospital for treatment of cuts he suffered from broken glass when he tried to get away from authorities by jumping through a window.
Both Weidman and Moore are charged with two felony counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal use of drug paraphernalia and criminal possession of a weapon.
Federal authorities have also been brought into the investigation since Sheriff’s officials say Moore was on Federal Supervised Release for a previous drug charge.
Weidman was sent to the Chenango County Jail on $100,000 bail. Bail for Moore was set at $50,000.
