Maine Man Accused of Turning Child's Playroom in Church into Meth Lab

A Maine man has been accused of turning a child’s playroom at a Methodist church into a lab that produces methamphetamine.

Police busted Matthew Anderson, 33, after church officials at Buxton United Methodist Church in Buxton, Maine, told authorities on Thursday about “suspicious activity” happening upstairs inside the playroom at the church, the Buxton Police Department announced Friday.

Police said officers then called in the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency for backup after discovering “items that are consistent with the manufacturing process of methamphetamine.”

Authorities arrested Anderson at a nearby home on an unrelated arrest warrant and interviewed him about the meth lab.

After interviewing him, the Maine Drug Enforcement Administration charged him with one felony count of unlawful operation of a methamphetamine lab, the Portland Press-Herald reported.
