Maine state police say they've uncovered a methamphetamine lab in Northport in the second such discovery of the new year.

Police say they discovered the meth lab while checking on a Prescott Road resident who was free on bail on unrelated drug charges.

Authorities say they charged 38-year-old Melinda "Mindy" Way for violating conditions of her bail. They say Way and a second person are expected to face drug charges next week.

Early in the week, police say they were investigating a suspicious when they found meth ingredients inside.

State police say 46-year-old Charles McNeice and 33-year-old Nicole Adams, both from Gray, face charges of operating a meth lab in that incident.

Maine ended 2015 with 56 meth lab incidents, an all-time high.
