BATH, Maine (AP) — Maine State Police say a Bath man has been arrested on charges of dealing the highly addictive drug methamphetamine near an elementary school.

Police say 35-year-old Mark Corson was charged Wednesday with aggravated trafficking of meth, after agents searched his apartment and found evidence of a methamphetamine lab.

A team from the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency searched the Dummer Street apartment in protective clothing around noon on Wednesday.

Police say the charge was elevated because the apartment is near the Newell Elementary School.

Officials say this is the fourth suspected meth lab found in Maine this year. The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency says 13 meth labs were discovered last year.
