CARIBOU — Agents with the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency have charged a Woodland man with trafficking in methamphetamine, after a search of his vehicle turned up evidence related to the manufacturing of the illicit drug.

The arrest was made subsequent to a traffic stop on Route 161 by Caribou Police Officer Matt Cummings the evening of July 16, which led to the vehicle being searched by police.

“The operator, Todd Doody, 23, of Woodland, was charged with operating after revocation and the vehicle was searched because of Doody’s condition of probation,” said Division Commander Darrell Crandall, MDEA.

The car was impounded by MDEA and towed to a site in Houlton, with agents obtaining a warrant to do a more extensive search of the Ford station wagon.

“Shortly after 2 p.m. Tuesday, July 17, MDEA’s lab team began processing the Ford station wagon. Agents in chemical gear and air purifying respirators removed equipment, pre-cursor chemicals and other evidence from throughout the vehicle,” said Crandall.

According to Crandall, the vehicle is registered to Todd Doody and Kimberly (Bowring) Doody of Woodland.

MDEA agents found evidence associated with the manufacturing of methamphetamine in a Ford station wagon owned and operated by Todd Doody, of Woodland, following a traffic stop July 16 in Caribou that found Doody driving after his license had been revoked. The car was impounded and towed to Houlton, where agents obtained a warrant and searched the vehicle. Doody was charged accordingly.

“Caribou police took Todd Doody to the Aroostook County Jail the night of July 16 on a probation violation and for operating after revocation. After completing the search, MDEA agents went to the jail to speak with Doody and have charged him with trafficking in methamphetamine, a Class B crime. If convicted, Doody faces up to 10 years in prison,” said Crandall.

The investigation is continuing and more arrests are possible.

Crandall said this is the 15th lab incident MDEA has responded to in Maine since July 1, 2011. He was pleased with the way the latest investigation was handled.

“This situation rolled out exactly as it should. The Caribou officers acted diligently to protect themselves and the public by recognizing what they had and calling for assistance,” said Crandall.

MDEA was assisted at the scene by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection.
