CONNOR, Maine (AP) - Drug agents say they have made an arrest after discovering a methamphetamine lab in a remote area in the Maine town of Connor in Aroostook County.
Officials said Friday that 34-year-old Jason Sirois of Van Buren has been charged with trafficking in methamphetamine.
Agents with the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency were investigating an April 16 incident where a garbage disposal employee had inhaled fumes from a meth lab that had been thrown away in a commercial dumpster when they identified Sirois as a suspect.
They placed him and some of his associates under surveillance and learned that he was traveling to a remote area in Connor.
Agents said they found an active meth manufacturing operation in the area on Thursday, and arrested Sirois when he approached the site Thursday night.
