Maine authorities have arrested two people and dismantled a suspected methamphetamine manufacturing lab in Lebanon, Maine.

The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency says 39-year-old Dana Lovely and 52-year-old Caren Polk were both charged with unlawful trafficking in methamphetamine.

State troopers and MDEA agents searched the home on Tuesday and found a number of so-called "one-pot' methamphetamine laboratories, as well as the ingredients used in the manufacture of meth.

The agency's Clandestine Laboratory Enforcement Team re-entered the home Wednesday to take out the toxic and potentially explosive lab.

The MDEA says it was the third meth-related bust this year.
