JAMESTOWN — A large quantity of methamphetamine was seized and five people are facing charges, the Jamestown Police Department announced Wednesday.

Taken into custody following a search of 12 Bishop St. on criminal possession charges were 38-year-old Jarrod K. Adams, 27-year-old Michael J. Murphy, 19-year-old Camille L. Lopez, 44-year-old Robin J. Moore and 53-year-old Austin Gordon.

On Tuesday, members of the Jamestown Metro Drug Task Force, Southern Tier Regional Drug Task Force, New York State Police and U.S. Marshals Office responded to the Bishop Street address in an attempt to locate Lopez, who was wanted on an outstanding federal absconding warrant.

At the residence, offices found Lopez “and also observed several other individuals and a large quantity of what appeared to be crystal methamphetamine inside,” Jamestown police announced.

A search warrant was obtained, and investigators later seized a half pound of crystal meth, $1,500 in cash and other drug paraphernalia.
