Oakfield Meth 2

The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency has responded to its 18th Meth Bust of the year.  This time in Oakfield.  Police responded to a home on the River Road in Oakfield after receiving a 911 call saying someone was trying to burn the house down.  When officers arrived at the residence, they found people who appeared to be under the influence of methamphetamine.  There was also a strong chemical odor coming from the residence.  The house was evacuated and MDEA was notified.   The owner of the home, 39 year old Douglas Morin, was arrested on a domestic violence related offense.   Agents have recovered a significant amount of evidence consistent with the manufacturing of methamphetamine. As a result, Morin, was charged with Class B Trafficking in Schedule W Drugs (methamphetamine). He is currently being held at the Aroostook County Jail in Houlton. Bail has been set at $10,000 cash.  Last year there were 20 meth labs dismantled in Maine by drug agents, a state record.
