Maine State Police and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency say they are investigating the discovery of a methamphetamine lab inside a Northport home on Friday.

It was the second meth lab discovered in Maine so far this year.

Troopers found the lab inside the house at 97 Prescott Hill Road while conducting a check on the home’s occupant, who was out on bail on unrelated drug charges, according to Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

He said Saturday that Melinda “Mindy” Way, 38, was rearrested for violating her bail conditions and taken to the Waldo County Jail.

MDEA’s meth lab team went to the home Friday night and seized a “substantial amount of evidence related to the manufacturing of meth,” McCausland said.

Way and a second person are expected to be charged on the meth violations, likely this coming week, he said.

Way and two others were arrested last April by state police troopers for allegedly forging checks from two Belfast businesses to purchase drugs. Way was the bookkeeper for the businesses, McCausland said.
