A Madawaska couple was arrested after the discovery of one of the largest meth-making operations the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency has ever seen, police said.

Carl Thibeault, 36, and his wife, Cassie Thibeault, 34, are charged with aggravated trafficking in methamphetamine, aggravated operation of a meth lab and endangering the welfare of a child, Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety, said in a news release Wednesday.

Maine drug agents on Tuesday raided the Main St. home the couple shares with their two young children.

Drug agents said an unspecified amount of methamphetamine and more than 80 containers that had been used to make the drug were seized from the home.

“Drug agents said this is one of the largest meth labs MDEA has encountered,” the release said.

The MDEA meth lab team, wearing protective suits and breathing apparatus, began collecting evidence and dismantling the meth lab Wednesday morning.

The raid marks the 15th meth-related response by the MDEA this year. There were 125 such responses in 2016.

The Maine Department of Health and Human Services was called to provide care for the couple’s children.
