A Limington woman is facing charges for allegedly operating a meth lab in the home she shares with her two small kids.

According to the Portland Press Herald, York County Sheriff's Deputies were first alerted on Tuesday when someone reported an explosion at the home of Sarah Goodwin. Smoke was visible from the home and the deputies detected a chemical smell. But when they confronted Goodwin, who was home with her two small children, she denied there had been an explosion. The deputies say they noticed evidence of a methamphetamine lab, including ingredients that had been partially processed.

Officials obtained a search warrant and returned on Wednesday with the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency Clandestine Lab team. A thorough search of the residence turned up more allegedly incriminating evidence.

Goodwin is charged with aggravated maintaining of a methamphetamine laboratory. She turned herself in to police on Wednesday and, at last report, was being held at the York County Jail on $50,000 bail.
