LITTLETON — A northern Maine man has been captured in Kansas seven months after he allegedly went on the run following a raid on a suspected methamphetamine laboratory.

The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency says 22-year-old Ronald Lewis of Littleton was arrested Monday night in Topeka.

DEA division commander Darrell Crandall told the Bangor Daily News that Lewis was wanted on a methamphetamine trafficking charge after drug agents searched a Presque Isle residence in December.

At the time, police arrested two other northern Maine men and charged them with trafficking methamphetamine.
