Three charged in Pomfret meth-making operation

Three people were jailed after police found items used in the production of methamphetamine inside a Pomfret residence.

Charged were 40-year-old Jessica Rumsey of Fredonia, 25-year-old Andrew M. Lindstrom of Fredonia and 29-year-old Tyler A Jaynes of Silver Creek after deputies with the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office responded around 11 p.m. Wednesday to a tip of three people trespassing at 5251 Webster Road in Pomfret. Rumsey, Lindstrom and Jaynes were detained when deputies arrived, and while inside deputies found “items consistent with methamphetamine production,” the Sheriff’s Office said in a press release.

Members of the Southern Tier Regional Drug Task Force and New York State Police Contaminated Crime Scene Emergency Response Team were summoned to the Webseter Road home for an additional search.

Rumsey, Lindstrom and Jaynes were each charged with second-degree trespassing and third-degree unlawful manufacturing. They were arraigned in Pomfret Town Court and remanded to Chautauqua County Jail.

Additional charges are pending against the three, the sheriff’s office said.
