Meth lab busted on Bucksport Road

ELLSWORTH — Agents from the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency Thursday arrested a Bucksport Road couple police said having been making methamphetamine in their home.

MDEA Northern Division Commander Darrell Crandall said the arrests came after agents and Ellsworth police officers executed a search warrant at the couple’s residence. The Maine Department of Environmental Protection assisted.

“Members of MDEA’s lab team found and seized a number of items which had been used to make methamphetamine,” Crandall said.

Arrested were Jacalyn Canlas, 30, and Ryan Miller, 36, both of Ellsworth each on one count of unlawful operation of a methamphetamine laboratory.

Police took the pair to the Hancock County Jail. They were still incarcerated Friday morning.

Authorities contacted the Maine Department of Health and Human Services, as minors also live at the home, Crandall said.

“This offense is a Class B felony and carries a potential 10-year prison sentence if they are convicted,” Crandall said. “Bail is set for both at $10,000 and they are expected to make an initial appearance in court today.”
