A Sparta man has made his first court appearance after being charged with manufacturing meth. Authorities say 33-year-old Jason Larry Russo was arrested after they received a tip that he was purchasing pseudoephedrine, one of the main ingredients in the illegal drug. They also reportedly found him with other components commonly used to manufacture meth. Russo was jailed under $50,000 dollars and also reportedly had warrant pending in Putnam County.
