SMYRNA — Maine drug agents have arrested an Aroostook County woman on drug charges after a raid at her home uncovered evidence of a methamphetamine lab.
The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency says it executed a search warrant at 32-year-old Felisha Suitter's Smyrna mobile home at about 2 p.m. Wednesday. Suitter tried to flee out the back door but was apprehended.
Police say agents in chemical and fire resistant suits and breathing apparatus scoured the trailer and another building on the property for several hours, seized equipment, chemicals and other items used in the making of methamphetamine, as well as an unspecified amount of the finished product.
The agency requested the search warrant after investigating reports of drug activity on the property for several months.
It wasn't clear if Suitter had a lawyer.
