01/30/2013 5:09 PM ET  

Drug agents have arrested three people in northern Maine in connection with a methamphetamine lab allegedly being run out of an apartment in Houlton.

HOULTON, Maine (AP) _ The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency says it was alerted to the operation by people who reported strong odors of chemicals coming from the apartment and possible criminal activity.

WCSH-TV reported that drug agents on Tuesday night found chemicals, solvents, equipment and other materials used to make methamphetamine.

Police arrested three people on drug charges, including two who lived in the apartment. A toddler who also lived in the apartment has been taken into protective custody.

The Maine DEA says it raided 13 meth labs in 2012, with eight of those located in northern Maine's Aroostook County.
