MDEA’s 40th Meth Lab Bust This Year – Evidence Seized in Greenbush Lab
The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency has responded to another meth lab– this one inside a mobile home on Main Road in Greenbush on Tuesday. This marks the 40th time in 2015 that MDEA has responded to a methamphetamine lab-related incident.
According to police, MDEA opened an investigation into the suspected manufacturing of methamphetamine by a man inside a mobile home at 45 Main Road in Greenbush, also known as Route 2.
At approximately 8 pm Tuesday night, MDEA’s clandestine laboratory response team made entry into the mobile home and discovered and seized a significant amount of evidence related to the manufacturing of methamphetamine, utilizing the “one-pot” or “shake and bake” method, said police.
Investigators say the suspect is the man who has been staying at the mobile home, but is not the owner. The suspect has not been located and his name is not being released at this time.
MDEA was assisted at the scene by the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office, the State Fire Marshal’s Office, Greenbush Fire Department and the Maine Department of Environmental Protection. During 2014, MDEA responded to a record number of meth lab incidents – 37.
