Two meth arrests made

She was not charged with meth manufacturing and will likely not be charged with the felony, Davison said.

“We were investigating Travis Bruce for manufacturing meth.”

Bruce was arraigned in Chazy Town Court and sent to Clinton County Jail on $15,000 cash bail/$30,000 bond. He is due back in court on Monday, April 8.

Dixie Bruce-Wilson was arraigned in Chazy Town Court and sent to Clinton County Jail on $2,000 cash bail/$4,000 bond. She is due back in court at a later date.

The Clinton County District Attorney’s Office is assisting in the investigation.

MISTAKES UNLIKELY

Wednesday’s arrests were the latest in a series of cases in recent months involving alleged manufacturing of meth.

With the ingredients used to make meth being so common and readily available, some citizens have expressed concern that they could be wrongfully charged with possessing precursors as they make household purchases.

“It would be very unlikely for someone to mistakenly buy the ingredients,” Davison said. “The average person will buy one or two things,” but not everything needed.

And should police receive misinformation regarding meth manufacturing or possession of precursors, the investigation would uncover the person’s innocence, he said.

Davison said the drug is “becoming more popular” in the area, and police know what to look for.

“It’s pretty obvious when people are making meth.”
