BUXTON, Maine — A Maine man is behind bars after police said he was operating a meth lab in a Buxton church.
According to the Buxton Police Department and WGME-TV, officers discovered "items that are consistent with the manufacturing process of methamphetamine" Thursday in a children's playroom at Buxton United Methodist Church. Investigators then traced the lab to 33-year-old Matthew Anderson, whom they found at a nearby home and arrested on an unrelated warrant, the department said Friday in a Facebook post.
The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency later charged Anderson with unlawfully operating a methamphetamine lab, according to the post.
Anderson, who failed to post $50,000 bond, remains at the York County Jail, police said. His next court appearance is slated for Jan. 24.
