FORT FAIRFIELD, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — Two meth labs were dismantled in separate parts of the state Tuesday.
The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency (MDEA) officials said the pair were No. 106 and No. 107 of total meth responses in the state this year, furthering a record, according to state Public Safety Department spokesperson Steve McCausland.
Agents found 71 plastic bottles used to make methamphetamine inside a Fort Fairfield home at 567 Route 1A, according to the MDEA, which suspects Dustin Murphy-Moran, 24, had been making the drug there for some time.
Murphy-Moran was arrested and charged with operating a meth lab. He was taken to the Aroostook County Jail with bail set at $10,000.
The scene of the other lab discovered in Troy at 408 Ward Hill Road is still active. McCausland said personnel is expected to arrive later on to safely dispose of the hazardous materials.
No arrests have been made in Troy, but a suspect has been identified, according to officials.
