Federal charges brought against suspects in Le Roy meth lab
Five people arrested in early December in connection with a suspected methamphetamine lab at 28 Clay St., Le Roy, now face federal charges as well.
Christopher J. Elmore, 31, of 14 St. Marks St., Le Roy, was arraigned in Federal Court in Buffalo on a charge of conspiracy to manufacture, distribute or dispense 500 grams or more of methamphetamine and possessing a firearm in furtherance of a drug-trafficking crime.
Besides the Genesee County charges resulting from the meth lab raid Dec. 10, Elmore was accused a week later by Le Roy Police with passing fake $10 bills.
Also charged were manufacturing and distribution were:
- Kari L. Riggi, 21, of 28 Clay St.
- Koree R. Stephenson, 22, 6539 Dodson Road, Wyoming
- Nathan D. Bernard, 21, 28 Clay St.
- Joshua A. Miller, 20, 51 Myrtle St.
None of those four defendants face the additional weapons charge, which is an enhancement that can lead to more time in a federal penitentiary.
Elmore, Stephenson, Riggi and Bernard remained jailed in Genesee County on $75,000 bail.
Miller is out of jail under the supervision of Genesee County Justice.
