Man Arrested For Manufacturing Meth In His Car
A man who was using the 'one-pot' method to manufacture methamphetamine was arrested by drug agents on Wednesday. This is the fourth meth-related incident this year.
Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland says drug agents approached Aric Hall, age 34 of Brunswick, as he sat in his vehicle outside Lowes in Brunswick. He was cooperative with the officers and showed them the 'One Pot' laboratory sitting on the passenger floor in his vehicle. There were also other items in the vehicle used in the making of meth. Hall was arrested and charged with Unlawful Trafficking in Methamphetamine, Class B.
Members of the MDEA Clandestine Laboratory Enforcement Team dismantled the laboratory, while collecting evidence. The State's Department of Environmental Protection assisted in taking custody of the hazardous materials generated by the laboratory for destruction. The Brunswick Police and Fire Departments assisted MDEA in this incident.
It was the fourth methamphetamine-related incident responded to in 2015. If you have information about this incident or the illegal sale of drugs in this state, you are urged to contact the MDEA office closest to you or by calling the MDEA tip-line at 800-452-6457.
