NEWARK VALLEY, N.Y. (AP) - State police say they've arrested six people after a raid at a rural upstate New York home uncovers an active methamphetamine lab.

Officials say local, state and federal law enforcement agencies were involved in the investigation into meth production at the home in the Tioga County town of Newark Valley.

On Tuesday, the state police Special Operations Response Team executed a search warrant at the home and arrested three men and three women, including the man and woman who live at the residence.

Police say they seized processed meth, hypodermic needles and numerous items associated with the manufacture of the drug.

All six people are being held in the county jail without bail.
