MDEA investigating activity at Main Street home
MADAWASKA, Maine — Madawaska police are keeping a security watch on a home at 507 Main Street in Madawaska, Tuesday afternoon, April 18, while the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency prepares to undertake an unspecified investigation inside the house.
Madawaska Police Lt. Jamie Pelletier declined to confirm further details Tuesday, but said he expected an MDEA spokesman to release a statement on the matter at some point.
Carl Thibeault, Jr. owns the home. He purchased the property in 2011, according to tax records at the Madawaska Town Office. Police declined to confirm information about who is currently living at the home. There are children’s toys and a small playset and slippery slide on the lawn in front of the home.
Sometime shortly after lunch Tuesday, police cordoned off the home with yellow perimeter tape. Lt. Pelletier said he was unaware of any injuries related to persons inside the home or law enforcement involved in securing the home Tuesday afternoon.
Maine Department of Public Safety Information Officer Stephen McCausland confirmed Tuesday evening that MDEA has the location secured for the night and will have additional information Wednesday.
The St. John Valley Times/Fiddlehead Focus will update this story as confirmed details become available.
