Dunkirk meth lab operator sentenced to prison

MAYVILLE – Angelo R. Bomasuto, 47, of Dunkirk was ordered Monday by State Supreme Court Justice Paul B. Wojtaszek to serve a prison term of up to six years and 1 1/2-years of post release supervision on his conviction on charges of third-degree unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine and attempted second-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance for operating a meth lab in a multi-unit dwelling on W. Sixth Street.

Acting Chautauqua County District Attorney Patrick E. Swanson said Bomasuto is the third meth lab operator his office as sent to state prison in the past three months.

Swanson said a specially-trained Maz-Mat team has to be called at taxpayer-expense each time to properly dispose of toxic chemicals and dangerous by-products of meth-making that pose a danger to entire communities.
