Coombs is being held pending arraignment, police said.
Ogdensburg police say they have handled 30 meth labs in Ogdensburg since the start of the year.
Coombs was also charged with second-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance on Nov. 17 after a police K9 allegedly found methamphetamine inside a vehicle she was driving.
In September, she and another defendant, Jimmy R. Sherron, 23, were each charged with third-degree unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine and fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, both felonies, and misdemeanor counts of criminal possession of a hypodermic instrument and second-degree criminal possession of drug paraphernalia. At the time of the arrest, city police said the charges stem from a meth-making investigation at 103 Pine St.
