Inside the the Buxton United Methodist Church, police found items consistent with the manufacturing process of methamphetamine in an upstairs playroom for children, Buxton police said in a statement.

Police identified Matthew Anderson as a suspect, and after taking him into custody on an unrelated arrest warrant, Anderson was interviewed and charged with unlawful operation of a methamphetamine lab, a Class B felony.

Anderson was taken to York County Jail in Alfred and is being held on $50,000 cash bail. Anderson is expected to appear in Alfred Superior Court in January.
