The raid on a suspected meth lab in LeRoy has now led to felony charges. Two men have been arrested in connection with the case. They are 31-year-old Christopher Williams of LeRoy and 23-year-old Nicholas Sadwick of Hamlin. Both are jail on heavy bail facing felony drug charges.
Lawmen say the search of a home on Route 19 just south of LeRoy yesterday did not turn up a working meth lab but a quantity of chemicals and equipment used to make the drug.
