FAIRFIELD, Maine — The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency and Fairfield police have launched an investigation after finding the makings of a methamphetamine lab on Serenity Circle, officials said Thursday.

Fairfield police went to the home to serve a search warrant unrelated to the apparent lab on Wednesday. Acting on the warrant, they found “material consistent with the manufacturing of methamphetamine,” according to Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland.

Police secured a second warrant to seize lab-related items.

The MDEA and Fairfield police continue to investigate, and no arrests have been made at this point, according to McCausland.

It is the 11th meth lab investigated in Maine in 2014.
