The Madison County Sheriff's Office says it's busted a major meth lab operation at 1720 Canal Road in the City of Oneida.

Investigators say they seized more than nine ounces of methamphetamine with a street value of over $26,000.

Madison County Undersheriff John Ball  says the lab was located in a structure adjacent to the home, similar to a large storage shed.  He says the lab environment was very explosive and hazardous.

55-year old Alan Blake and 33-year old Brian James, both of Oneida, and 30-year old Nicole Delfino of Syracuse were all arrested.

Blake and James are facing charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine.

Delfino is charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance.

The investigation is continuing and additional charges may be coming.
