OLD TOWN – Maine Drug Enforcement Agents said a body was found and four people are behind bars in connection with a meth lab that was found inside an Old Town Apartment home.
Sue Smith, 36, who is homeless, Carrie Ballanger, 31, Don Dube, 47, of Glenburn, along with Jason Smith, 38, who’s not pictured here, were all arrested Thursday.
The body of a fifth person was also found yesterday in a home just down the street.
Agents say the lab was found inside an apartment home on Brunswick Street Tuesday after fire crews investigated reports of an explosion and small fire in the home.
The Maine State Fire Marshal’s Office confirmed the fire started because of the meth lab and believe the man who died was seriously burned as a result and ran from the scene, before being found at another home on Brunswick Street.
Jason Smith and Ballanger are both tenants in the apartment.
All four were taken to the Penobscot County Jail and charged with aggravated unlawful operation of a meth lab.
