Police report seizing $32,000 worth of methamphetamine from Caribou man

CARIBOU, Maine — Officers seized 326 grams of crystal methamphetamine, worth an estimated $32,000, while conducting a bail check on Nathan Morrow, 25, of Caribou on Oct. 19, according to the Caribou Police Department.

Officer Keith Ouellette arrived at Morrow’s residence with members of the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency and U.S. border patrol, Caribou Police Chief Michael Gahagan said in a press release issued Wednesday.

Police indicated that conditions of Morrow’s bail on other unspecified charges make him subject to random searches and testing. When they searched the home, officers found the methamphetamine as well as several pipes, needles, drug paraphernalia, marijuana, and fentanyl, according to the release.

Police subsequently charged Morrow with Class A and B aggravated trafficking in schedule W drugs for the methamphetamine and fentanyl respectively, as well as for violation of conditional release.

Morrow is now being held without bail at the Aroostook County Jail in Houlton, where he awaits a scheduled court appearance on Dec. 6.

The press release also indicated that the Caribou Police Department has seized 685 grams of methamphetamine worth about $68,000 since August of this year.

“Tips and intel from the public are crucial to arresting and charging people who sell drugs and commit other crimes,” Gahagan states in the release. “If you see something or have info you’d like to share, please call us. We thank the citizens who have come forward with information relating to these arrests.”
