Four Men, Two Women Arrested in Houlton Meth Bust
Six more people have been arrested following the discovery of a meth lab earlier this month inside a Columbia Street apartment house in Houlton.
On June 17, the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency arrested 48-year-old Toni Bulley, who lived in the 2-unit apartment house. She was charged with trafficking in methamphetamine. Following Bulley's arrest, the MDEA's Aroostook Task Force, working with Houlton Police and the Aroostook County Sheriff’s Office, continued the investigation to identify more suspects, according to Commander Peter Arno.
Police have now charged four men and two women who allegedly assisted Bulley with making the meth or helped her acquire the materials used to make the dangerous drug.
The MDEA says 29-year-old Jesse Case, 25-year-old Earl Little Jr., 29-year-old Crystal Cameron, 21-year-old Mataya Gardiner, and 36-year-old Bruce King, all of Houlton, have been charged with Class B unlawful trafficking in schedule W drugs.
Fifty-nine-year-old Gary Gardiner of Houlton, is charged with Class A unlawful trafficking schedule W drugs, which is aggravated due to a prior drug felony conviction.
All six were transported to the Aroostook County Jail. Agents said the investigation is continuing and more arrests are possible.
