BATH, Maine — A second person has been charged in connection with the discovery of a suspected meth lab near an elementary school.

Bethany Laflin, 24, of Norridgewock was arrested Thursday and charged with aggravated trafficking in methamphetamine, according to a news release issued by the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency. The charge is aggravated because the alleged activity was near a school — the Newell Elementary School.

Laflin is the girlfriend of Mark Corson, 35, of Bath, who was arrested Wednesday on charges of making methamphetamine near a school, according to MDEA.

MDEA’s lab team searched Corson’s Dummer Street apartment and found evidence of a methamphetamine lab, the fourth discovered in Maine this year, according to the news release.

No additional details are being provided at this time by MDEA, who said the investigation continues.

MDEA said seized 13 meth labs in Maine in 2012.
