The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency said Tuesday it had discovered two more methamphetamine laboratories in the state, including one in Troy.

The Troy lab, located at 408 Ward Hill, and another lab in Fort Fairfield were being dismantled Tuesday by state drug agents with the assistance of Maine State Police, according to a news release from state police spokesman Steve McCausland.

Last week, a meth lab was discovered in the basement of a home at 11 Spring St. in Hallowell, which resulted in one arrest, authorities said.

No arrests have been made in connection to the discovery of the Troy lab; however, a suspect has been identified, according to the release.

Reached by phone Tuesday, McCausland said he did not know the type of building the lab was discovered in and said he had no further details on the case.

Agents found the Fort Fairfield lab inside a home at 567 U.S. Route 1A. Dustin Murphy-Moran was arrested and charged with operating a meth lab in connection to the Fort Fairfield discovery. Agents found 71 plastic soda bottles inside the home that allegedly were used to make meth.

The discovery of the two labs bring this year’s total of meth responses by the MDEA to 107.
