It appears no Maine community is immune from the spread of methamphetamine. Three people have been arrested following the discovery of an alleged meth lab on Vinalhaven. They include 25 year Ryan Rairdon of Houlton, 20 year old Hillary Walker of Vinalhaven and 23 year old Owen Adair who also lives on the island. They're all charged with trafficking in methamphetamine. Officials say the Knox County Sheriff's Department learned about the lab inside a small tool shed yesterday and Maine drug Enforcement Agency was called to dismantle it. The location isn't being disclosed because the owner wasn't aware it was there. Agents also went to a home in union where additional evidence was seized. 28 meth labs were busted in Maine last year. This is the first of the new year.
