OAKFIELD Maine drug agents say a 29-year-old woman was arrested after officers discovered an alleged methamphetamine manufacturing lab in a camper in the eastern Maine town of Oakfield.

In addition to drug trafficking charges, police say Crystal Hitchcock is facing child endangerment charges because a toddler was also found in the camper when agents raided it late Tuesday.

A spokesman for the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency says agents seized from the camper drug precursors, chemicals and other materials used to make methamphetamine.

State child welfare officials were called in to take custody of the child.

Hitchcock was being held at the Aroostook County jail.
