Police break up Meyersdale meth lab

MEYERSDALE, Pa. — Pennsylvania State Police troopers from the Somerset barrack and Meyersdale Borough police executed search warrants early Tuesday morning for a reported methamphetamine production lab at an apartment located at 7052 Mason Dixon Highway.

Evidence of a working meth lab was immediately apparent with items that are commonly used in the production of methamphetamine seen throughout the second-floor apartment during the 1:45 a.m. raid, said police.

Police found Jordan Odonnell, 22, who was renting the apartment, and Matthew Bowman, 29, of the same address, inside the apartment with two other people, all of whom were secured and removed.

Odonnell was charged with the manufacture of controlled substances, conspiracy to manufacture controlled substances, possession of controlled substances and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Sandra Stevanus and held in the Somerset County Jail on $75,000 bond.

Bowman was charged with conspiracy to manufacture controlled substances, possession of controlled substances and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was held in the Somerset County Jail on $125,000 bond.

The Pennsylvania State Police Clandestine Lab Team responded at about 6 a.m. and removed the items that were being used to manufacture meth.

On Monday, during an investigation into theft/forgery, state police were provided a tip about the meth lab and were able to obtain enough information to get a search warrant approved by District Attorney Lisa Lazzari-Strasiser and issued by Stevanus.
