The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency working with Madawaska Police, arrested Carl and Casie Thibeault Tuesday afternoon and charged them with aggravated trafficking in methamphetamine, aggravated operation of a meth lab and endangering the welfare of a child, said officials. The couple’s two young children also lived at the house. After the discovery the home was secured last night to await the arrival of the MDEA meth lab team, said Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland.

That team, specially trained to gather evidence following the discovery of a meth lab, arrived in Madawaska late this morning. Wearing protective suits and breathing apparatus, the team began their work shortly after their arrival. Also assisting the drug agency were the Madawaska Fire Department, Maine DEP, Aroostook Sheriff’s Office and the State Fire Marshal’s Office.

Drug agents said this is one of the largest meth labs MDEA has encountered. Seized from inside the home was a considerable amount of materials used to make the drug, including a quantity of meth and over 80 containers that had been used to make the highly addictive drug.

Carl Thibeault, who is 36, was taken to the Aroostook County Jail and his 34 year old wife, Casie, was released on bail . The Maine Department of Health and Human Services were called to assist in placing the two children into a safe location, said McCausland.

This is the 15th meth related response by MDEA this year. Last year, MDEA had 125 meth related incidents.
