Oakfield Man Arrested in Mobile Meth Case

The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency has arrested a 26-year-old Oakfield man and charged him with aggravated trafficking of methamphetamine.

Maine State Police

Drug agents started investigating  Bo Branscombe after receiving information of alleged manufacturing of methamphetamine in his car.  The MDEA had alerted other police departments in Aroostook County to watch for a light blue Ford Escort.

According to Steve McCausland of the Maine Public Safety Department, State Police stopped Branscombe’s vehicle in Oakfield on Tuesday afternoon.  Police say they found a significant amount of material consistent with making meth.

Branscombe was taken into custody and transported to the Aroostook County Jail. His vehicle was seized and towed to a secure location in Houlton.

On Wednesday, the MDEA lab team assisted by chemists from Maine’s Health and Environmental Testing Lab searched the impounded vehicle.  They reported finding a significant amount of evidence supporting the allegation that Branscombe was involved in the manufacture of methamphetamine.

The hazardous materials were turned over to the Maine Department of Environmental Protection for disposal, other than what was needed for testing.  The Houlton Fire Department also assisted as the car was being searched.

Branscombe made an initial court appearance on Wednesday. Bail was set at $5,000 and he remains in the Aroostook County Jail. The charge against Branscombe was elevated to a class A felony due to a prior felony methamphetamine possession conviction.
