Burnham woman arrested after discovery of meth lab
Burnham — Maine Drug Enforcement Agents recently arrested two women following the discovery of two unrelated methamphetamine laboratories in Burnham and Howland.
Saturday night, March 18, State Police conducted a bail check at 40 North Horseback Road in Burnham. During a bail check on 29-year-old Amber Nayock, Trooper Seth Allen discovered an active meth lab inside the mobile home and the MDEA meth lab team was called in, according to a press release from State Police. Nayock was arrested and charged with trafficking in methamphetamine. She was taken to Waldo County jail.
Howland Fire Department discovered the other meth lab March 16, when responding to a report of smoke and a strange odor coming from an apartment at 2 Westside Lane. Kelly L. Moore, 52, was arrested and the charge elevated to class A aggravated operation of a meth lab because the apartment building houses multiple units. Moore was taken to Penobscot County Jail.
Responses have pushed into double digits during the first three months of 2017. In 2016, State Police were called to 125 suspected labs.
