Hodgdon, Maine, March 25, 2014- The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency’s Aroostook County Task Force and the Clandestine Drug Laboratory Enforcement Team (CDLET) executed a search warrant Tuesday at a residence located on the Hodgdon Mills Road in Hodgdon and located evidence of a clandestine methamphetamine manufacturing operation
For the past several weeks, investigators with MDEA’s Aroostook County Task Force office have been investigating the suspected manufacturing of methamphetamine inside a residence located in the Town of Hodgdon, just outside of Houlton. With the information gathered during the investigation, agents prepared an affidavit in support of a search warrant for this house. The request for the warrant was granted and at approximately 10 a.m. Tuesday morning, agents made entry into the home on the Hodgdon Mills Rd.
During the search, agents seized a significant amount of evidence which is consistent with the illicit manufacturing of methamphetamine.
Charged as a result of this investigation was Marcus Toner, 24 of Hodgdon. He has been charged 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. More arrests are anticipated. This marks the 7th suspected methamphetamine lab that MDEA has responded to thus far in 2014.
The 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).
