Waterloo (WSYR-TV) – Sheriff’s Investigators in Seneca County say an explosion in the back of a garbage truck led to a meth bust in the village of Waterloo on Tuesday.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, village DPW workers reported that garbage collected from a residence had exploded in their truck.

They say when multiple law enforcement agencies searched a residence on Thurber Drive they found equipment commonly used in manufacturing methamphetamine.

Sheriff’s Investigators also learned that three children lived in the same residence that housed the alleged meth-making materials.

Jamie Murphy, 37, and Rachelle Murphy, 32, of Thurber Drive, were charged with unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine, a felony, and 3 counts of unlawfully dealing with a child in the first degree, a misdemeanor.

They were both arraigned in Waterloo Village Court and taken to jail.

Jamie Murphy is being held in lieu of $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond.

Rachelle Murphy is being held in lieu of $2,500 cash bail or $5,000 bond.

A judge issued “stay-away” orders of protection barring the Murphys from having contact with the children found in the Thurber Drive residence.
