400 marijuana plants, evidence of meth lab found in Farmington home


FARMINGTON - Police say they seized 400 marijuana plants and found evidence of an inactive methamphetamine lab at a home at 294 Meaderboro Road on Thursday.

Two people living at the address have been arrested and a child who lived there, an 11-year-old, has been placed in the custody of his father, who lives at a different address and is not implicated in the investigation, police said.

Daniel Helm, 43, and Christy Olden, 42, were each charged with manufacturing marijuana, attempt to manufacture methamphetamines and prohibited conduct of manufacturing in a home where a child resides. They were scheduled to be arraigned on Friday.

The arrests were the result of several weeks of investigation conducted by the Strafford County Drug Task Force, the Farmington police and state police into the growing of marijuana, which resulted in a search warrant at the Meaderboro Road home.

In addition to finding the marijuana plants, evidence of the methamphetamine lab included various household chemicals, manufacturing plans, and paraphernalia associated with the precursors of methamphetamine production, police said.
