AMITY, Maine (AP) - Two Maine brothers have been charged after police say they found them cooking the ingredients for methamphetamine.

Maine State Police spokesman Steve McCausland said police received information about a suspected meth lab in a remote hunting camp in northern Maine. Police say they went to the camp in Amity Tuesday night and found the two men in the suspected lab.

Twenty-eight-year-old Kevin Carton and his brother 26-year-old Micah Carton of New Limerick were arrested and charged.

Police say the camp owner did not know about the suspected drug activity.

McCausland says Tuesday's incident was the 18th time this year that police and drug enforcement officials have responded to a suspected meth lab, an all-time record for the state.

It could not be determined of the two men have lawyers.
