Police: Man tried to rescue drugs from fire
LISLE, N.Y. State police in the Southern Tier say a man ran into his burning home to rescue a stash of drugs.
Now 38-year-old Leslie Manasse of Lisle faces several charges, including drug possession, drug use and obstructing firefighting operations.
State police say Manasse ran into the burning house after being told not to and returned with two small bags of marijuana and a bag with several grams of a white crystal-like substance. That bag was sent to a state lab for testing.
Lisle is 18 miles north of Binghamton.
