On Thursday, the Broome County Sheriff’s Office Highway Patrol Division responded to a theft of services complaint on Zeggert Road in the Town of Union.endicott+meth+web+333

Deputies said the complaint stemmed from the residents of 1006 May St. stealing electrical service from a residence on Zeggert Road, which is located directly behind the May Street residence.

The investigating deputy followed the extension cord back to 1006 May Street, and saw a meth operation through an open window of the home.

The Broome County Special Investigations Unit Task Force was contacted to continue the investigation. Members obtained a search warrant for the residence.

Broome County SIU Task Force members and members of the Broome County Sheriff’s Office Highway Patrol Division searched the residence for anyone inside, with negative results, and were able to render the scene safe for the night.

The Broome County Sheriff’s Office Highway Patrol Division monitored the home throughout the night until morning.

Because of the volatility of the meth that was being manufactured, the task force called for the assistance of the New York State Police Contaminated Crime Scene Emergency Response Team (CCSERT).

On Friday, task force members and CCSERT executed the search warrant on the residence and located approximately five fluid ounces of methamphetamine oil, packaged heroin, controlled substance pills and an indoor marijuana grow operation.

An inspector from the Town of Union Code Enforcement Office responded to the scene and deemed the house unsafe. The property was condemned.

Peter Drossos, 53, and Michele Drossos, 48, both of 1006 May St., were arrested and arraigned in the Town of Union Court Thursday night. They were taken to the Broome County Sheriff’s Office.
