Eagle Lake Man Arrested for Trafficking Meth
A 45-year-old Eagle Lake man faces felony drug trafficking charges after police say they seized a large amount of methamphetamine from his home earlier this month.
Maine State Police say officers found the drugs while executing a search warrant related to the investigation of recent burglaries and thefts throughout the Saint John Valley. Kyle Robertson was considered a suspect and was likely to be in possession of stolen property according to a news release from Troop F.
On January 4th, at around 1:45 p.m., members of the Maine State Police, Aroostook County Sheriff’s Office, Maine Warden Service, and Maine Forest Service executed a search warrant at Robertson’s residence on Gilmore Brook Road in Eagle Lake.
