KINGFIELD — Authorities have charged five people in connection with what police called a methamphetamine lab that was discovered after a mobile home fire in Kingfield last month.

Police say Seth Hinkley of Strong; Joshua Bartlett of New Portland; David Coffren of Kingfield; Charity Haines Christopher of Farmington; and Isaac Moody of West Farmington are facing a range of charges from drug trafficking to arson.

Investigators found remains of the methamphetamine laboratory after the fire on Feb. 8.

Matthew Cashman, a Maine Drug Enforcement Agency supervisor for the region, says the home was a “shake-and-bake” laboratory, named after the technique of mixing chemicals in small containers to make the meth. The method is highly risky.

Cashman says the investigation continues and more arrests are possible.
