Hodgdon Man Charged with Manufacturing Methampetamine
A Hodgdon Man was arrested Tuesday and faces charges of trafficking methampetamine.
After a several week investigation, authorities were granted a warrant to search a home on the Hodgdon Mills Rd. which they believed contained the makings of a meth lab, according to the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency.
At around 10am Tuesday, authorities located evidence of a meth lab operation and have charged Marcus Toner, 24, with Class B trafficking in Schedule W Drugs (Methamphetamine).
Toner was transported to the Aroostook County Jail pending bail. A 17 year old female who was in the residence with Toner was released to her mother. No charges against the juvenile have been filed at this time. Authorities say they anticipate more arrests as the investigation continues.
This marks the 7th suspected methamphetamine lab that MDEA has responded to so far in 2014.
The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency’s Aroostook County Task Force and the Clandestine Drug Laboratory Enforcement Team (CDLET) was assisted at the scene by the Aroostook County Sheriff’s Department, the Maine State Police, the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, and a chemist from Maine Health and Environmental Testing Laboratory (HETL).
