CARIBOU (AP) – A Caribou man has been arrested for the second time in less than a year, accused of having a meth lab at his home, the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency said Wednesday.

Lucien Woo, 33, was arrested Monday night on a charge of violating bail. He was later charged with trafficking in methamphetamine, a Class B felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

On Tuesday agents dressed in special gear and using respirators to protect themselves from chemicals and solvents used to make the drug searched the roped-off home in a quiet residential area off Main Street.

The MDEA said it went to Woo’s home in response to a tip that he was purchasing items used to manufacture meth. Evidence seized from the home included ingredients and solvents used in the process, the agency said.

The meth lab was the third to be found in Maine this year, according to the MDEA. The others, inside homes in Lewiston and Auburn, were located in January.
