A Charleston man is under arrest and charged with trafficking in methamphetamine. Maine Drug Enforcement Agents, along with the Dover-Foxcroft Police Department have been conducting an investigation for several weeks into the manufacture and trafficking of the drug.

In the course of the investigation, agents learned that 33-year-old Joel Frigon was allegedly using his pickup truck to transport the materials needed to cook the drug.On Wednesday, DEA agents and Dover-Foxcroft police stopped the truck being driven by Frigon and gathered enough evidence to take him into custody.

The vehicle was towed to a location in Bangor where it was searched by chemists from Maine’s Health and Environmental Testing Lab. Enough evidence was gathered to convince agents that Frigon was involved in the manufacture and/or distribution of methamphetamine. All hazardous materials gathered from the truck were turned over to the Maine Department of Environmental Protection for disposal.

Joel Frigon is charged with trafficking in methamphetamine, a Class B felony. The investigation continues.
