Danforth Couple Charged With Making Methamphetamine
A Danforth couple, whose infant son died unexpectedly and whose home was damaged in a fire Friday morning, has been charged with trafficking in methamphetamine.
The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency’s Aroostook County Task Force and the Clandestine Drug Laboratory Enforcement Team executed a search warrant Saturday at 34 Weatherbee Street in Danforth. Agents found evidence of a methamphetamine manufacturing operation at the mobile home, according to Commander Peter Arno.
On Friday, the MDEA received a call from an investigator with the State Fire Marshal’s Office, who stated that during an investigation into the origin of a fire at the Danforth home, he located several items which are typically used in conjunction with a “one pot” methamphetamine laboratory.
The MDEA charged 39-year-old Allen Richardson and 30-year-old Tabbatha Osnoe of Danforth with Class B trafficking of methamphetamine.
Richardson and Osnoe were transported to the Washington County Jail. Both were on probation and a probation hold was placed on them in addition to the above charges.
Also assisting at the scene Saturday were Maine State Police, the Maine Fire Marshal’s office, the Department of Environmental Protection, a chemist from Maine Health and Environmental Testing Laboratory, and the Danforth Fire Department.
