OGDENSBURG — An Ogdensburg woman was jailed after police executed a search warrant that turned up a methamphetamine lab at 102 Ogden St Wednesday night, according to Ogdensburg police.

Around 7:40 p.m. Ogdensburg police, along with members of its Narcotics Enforcement Unit, responded to an apartment for a reported domestic incident. During the investigation officers allegedly observed drug paraphernalia and components commonly used to manufacture and use methamphetamine.

A search warrant was sought and provided by Ogdensburg City Court Judge Alford, police said.

During the execution of the search warrant, investigators recovered components of a one-pot methamphetamine manufacturing operation, as well as methamphetamine product, officers said.

Ashley M. Williams, 23, was charged with second-degree unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine, felony, officers said.

“The charge stems from the fact that Williams was found in possession of particular components of a methamphetamine lab, as well as the fact that she has a previous conviction for unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine in the previous five years,” officers said.

Williams was also charged with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, felony, police said. She was found in possession of five grams or more of a stimulant.

Additionally, she was charged with criminal possession a hypodermic instrument, officers said.

Williams was ordered held at the Ogdensburg Police Department awaiting arraignment for her charges.

The investigation is ongoing and more arrests are likely, police said.
