Fourth Maine Meth Lab Arrest This Year
Another meth lab bust has taken place in Maine. A Unity man has been arrested in connection with the state's fourth meth lab of the year.
According to a report by public information officer for the Maine State Police, Stephen McCausland, on the evening of Monday, March 5, MDEA agents from the Mid-Coast District Task Force and the Waldo Sheriff's Office searched the home of 35-year-old Thomas Heaberlin of 16 Fisher Road in Unity, Maine.
McCausland went on to report that, earlier in the day, agents conducted surveillance of Heaberlin as he returned to his residence after purchasing the ingredients used to manufacture meth.
During the search, agents found a concealed room within the home and evidence inside of meth-making to include 10 one-pot labs that Heaberlin had used to cook up the meth.
Heaberlin was then arrested, without incident, for Unlawful Operation of a Methamphetamine Laboratory, which is a Class B felony and he was transported to the Waldo County Jail.
His bail was set at $100 cash.
The Maine Department of Environmental Protection assisted by taking possession of the toxic byproducts of the methamphetamine production.
