One Arrested and One Sought for Wells Meth Lab [UPDATE]
Two people are accused of operating a meth lab out of a camper in Wells.
Public Safety Spokesman Steve McCausland says 28-year-old Jennifer Boudle is charged with Unlawful Operation of a Methamphetamine laboratory following a search of her home at 859 Post Road in Wells on November 16th. Boudle lived in the camper on the property with her boyfriend and their three children. MDEA officials were asking for the public's help locating 41-year-old John Regan, of Wells and Concord, New Hampshire. Shortly after that plea was released, it was reported that Regan was apprehended in Concord, New Hampshire. He will be extradited to Maine. The children are safe and staying with relatives.
Boudle was taken into custody by drug agents and Wells Police after a vehicle she was riding in was stopped in Wells. She is currently free on $500 bail. Regan and the three children have not been located and drug agents think they are either in southern Maine or in New Hampshire.
The charges are the result of an investigation that culminated with the seizure of the couple's camper. Officials found Boudle and Regan at home, along with their three children, ages infant to 10 years old. Agents seized the camper and allowed the family to leave as they prepared paperwork for a search warrant. That search yielded a significant amount of evidence related to the manufacturing of methamphetamine. On December 23rd, arrest warrants were issued for the couple.
