According to Steve McCausland with the Department of Public Safety, State Police conducted a bail check Saturday night at 40 North Horseback Road in Burnham.

Nayock was arrested and charged with trafficking in methamphetamine and taken to the Waldo County Jail.
McCausland also said that last Thursday, the Howland Fire Department responded to 2 Westside Lane after a report of smoke and a strange odor coming from an apartment. Firefighters suspected a meth lab shorty after they arrived and contacted the Penobscot Sheriff's Office. The MDEA meth lab team was also called and found the makings of a lab inside. He said, arrested was 52 year old Kelly L. Moore who lived in the apartment and charged with Class A Aggravated Operation of a Meth Lab. The charge was aggravated due to the fact that this was a multi unit building. Moore was taken to the Penobscot County Jail.
