BREWER, Maine (AP) - Police say a Bangor woman was operating a meth lab out of her hotel room.

A spokesman for the state Department of Public Safety says the hotel’s cleaning staff discovered the operation Thursday morning at the Vacationland Inn in Brewer.

Police arrested the 29-year-old Bangor woman who was renting the room earlier in the day on a warrant for failing to appear in court.

Authorities say she was charged with drug trafficking Thursday night and is being held on nearly $1,500 cash bail.

Officials say the hotel was evacuated when the meth lab team arrived. Drug agents wearing protective suits confirmed that there was a meth lab in the room.
