BUCKSPORT - A Bucksport woman remains at the Hancock County Jail after she was accused of operating a meth lab.

A Maine Drug Enforcement Agency official said 28-year-old Megan Patten was arrested Sunday after agents searched a Center Street home.

 

According to a statement from the MDEA, Patten was arrested at the same home where police broke up a meth operation in November of last year.

 

The regional MDEA commander said the search warrant was issued based on evidence provided by Bucksport Police officers.

 

Sunday's meth bust was the second in 2019 for the unit's special hazmat recovery team.
