Law enforcement agencies discovered two meth labs Wednesday, one in Ellsworth and the other in Milford.

Police arrested a Houlton man and allege that he was operating a meth lab out of his pickup truck off Route 180 in Ellsworth.

Micah McGillicuddy, 27, was arrested by agents from the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland said.

Ellsworth police discovered the alleged meth lab Tuesday night after investigating a report of a suspicious vehicle parked along a private road off Route 180.

When police approached the truck, McGillicuddy fled into the woods, where he spent the night. He was apprehended Wednesday and taken to a hospital for observation.

McGillicuddy is being held at the Hancock County Jail in Ellsworth. His truck was towed to the Maine State Police barracks in Bangor, where the MDEA’s meth lab team began securing the vehicle.

In an unrelated incident Wednesday afternoon, the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office discovered what they believe was another meth lab inside a mobile home off Call Road in Milford.

No one has been charged in the Milford case and drug agents say a woman who lives in the trailer has been cooperating with investigators.
