Meth Lab Inside Vehicle Seized in MainePosted on December 12, 2013
On December 9, 2013 at approximately 6:00 PM, a Waldo County Sheriff’s Deputy conducted a traffic stop of a Green, 1999 Subaru Forester that was operating erratically on Route 137 in the town of Knox. The operator, Jonathan Davis appeared to be under the influence of a mind altering drug. Due to his behavior, Davis was transported to Thayer Hospital in Waterville for evaluation.
During the traffic stop deputies observed several items in Davis’s Subaru they recognized as items used to manufacture methamphetamine. Davis’ vehicle was secured and towed to the Rockland Police Department pending the drafting and issuance of a search warrant.
On December 12, 2013, at approximately 11:30 AM, agents from the Mid-Coast District task Force, with the assistance of the Maine Drug Enforcement Clandestine Drug Laboratory Enforcement Team (CDLET) executed a search warrant of Davis’s Subaru. As a result of the search, agents seized a number of items as evidence of methamphetamine manufacturing. A member of the state’s Department of Environmental Protection assisted agents by securing hazardous items and by-products of the laboratory to be disposed of.
Davis turned himself into agents in Rockland this afternoon where he was arrested for aggravated trafficking and was transported to the Waldo County Jail. Davis' bail was set at $250 dollars.
During the execution of the search warrant the CDLET was assisted by the Rockland Fire Department.
