Port Leyden man admits to meth-making last summer


LOWVILLE — A Port Leyden man admitted in Lewis County Court on Friday that he was involved in the making of methamphetamine last summer.

Richard A. Cobb Jr., 22, of 2466 Thomas Road, Port Leyden, pleaded guilty to third-degree unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine. Sentencing was set for April 25. Mr. Cobb was accused of possessing equipment and drug-making materials on May 7 at a West Turin residence.

Also in Lewis County Court Friday:

Teresia L. Jenne, 38, of 7786 Brantingham Road, Greig, was sentenced, as a second-felony offender, to 2 to 5 years in state prison, $5,500 restitution and $375 in court fees on a charge of third-degree grand larceny, to which she pleaded guilty Nov. 15; the plea also satisfied two counts of first-degree identity theft. She was also recommended for the state prison system’s 90-day Willard Drug Rehabilitation Program, which allows inmates that successfully complete it to serve the remainder of their prison sentences under parole supervision.

Ms. Jenne was accused of trying to pass herself off as Kurt Jenne on both April 8 and April 15 by providing his personal information to a bank and a financial loan company, respectively, as well as cashing a $5,000 check Sept. 9 from a Community Bank account that didn’t have money in it.

Gabriel E. Jewett, 21, of 3966 Factory St., Natural Bridge, was sentenced to three years’ probation, $671.97 restitution and $250 in court fees on a charge of petit larceny, to which he pleaded guilty Jan. 24. He was accused of stealing checks belonging to Edward Jewett between July 24 and Aug. 22 in the town of Diana.

He has also pleaded guilty in Jefferson County Court to third-degree forgery for forging a check belonging to Edward Jewett on July 27 in Carthage. He is expected to be sentenced March 28 to time served in jail and probation, concurrent with the Lewis County term.

In court action Monday:

Nicholas L. Highers, 35, of 6483 Cone Road, Boonville, was arraigned on a charge of felony driving while intoxicated and pleaded guilty to the charge. He was then entered into the county’s Drug Court program. Mr. Highers was stopped Nov. 28 on Cone Road in the town of Leyden.
