Man charged with making meth after reportedly attempting to burn evidence

JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (WIVB) — Concerned neighbors phoned for help from police after they say a Jamestown man attempted to burn the evidence left behind from methamphetamine production.

Police in Jamestown say they sprung into action on Tuesday when they received the call. They investigated two trash cans that Kyle Moore allegedly set on fire, then searched his apartment after learning they had waste products from meth production inside.

Inside Moore’s apartment, police say they found additional materials used in the production of methamphetamine, prompting Moore’s arrest.

Moore stands charged with second degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and third degree unlawful manufacturing of methamphetamine — both felony charges. He’ll return to court at a later date.

Police thanked the public for their vigilance and said anybody with a tip can always call it in to (716) 483-8477. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
