LINNEUS – The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency and its lab team responded to the Aroostook County Town of Linneus Thursday and dismantled a methamphetamine lab operating inside a house on Route 2A. Drug agents have questioned the man and woman who live in the mobile home. Also living at the house is the woman’s four year old child. Wearing protective suits and breathing equipment, agents dismantled the lab last night. Also responding to the scene was the Aroostook County Sheriff’s Office, the Maine Department of Environmental Protection and the Linneus Fire Department.
Although no one has yet to be charged with the meth lab, the resident of the house was arrested on a bail violation for a previous meth arrest and a woman, visiting the home, was charged with meth possession.
They are 28 year old Alan Gilotti, who lives at the home, and 28 year old Nicole Hall. Gilotti, who was out on bail on a previous charge of trafficking in methamphetamine and Hall was charged with possessing meth. Both were taken to the Aroostook County Jail. The woman who lives at the home with her daughter has not been charged.
The lab was discovered Thursday afternoon when MDEA agents went to the home after the Maine Department of Health and Human Services had received information that a meth lab was operating inside the home. Deputies were then called to secure the mobile home until the lab team arrived last night.
This is the eighth meth lab discovered in Maine so far this year.
