Aug. 15 edition: VAN BUREN - An arraignment date of Sept. 20 has been set for 34-year-old Jason Sirois of Van Buren, according to the Caribou court clerk’s office. Sirois had been indicted July 13 by the Aroostook County Grand Jury on charges related to a raid on an alleged meth lab in Connor this past May.

Sirois was indicted for alleged unlawful trafficking of scheduled drugs and reckless conduct, according to information released by Todd Collins, district attorney for Aroostook County.

Sirois did not post bail and remains incarcerated, according to Aroostook County Sherriff, James Madore.

In a statement, Collins commented that this indictment, and another recent one related to meth production in Limestone, mark the latest in a series of methamphetamine manufacturing cases that are being prosecuted by the District Attorney’s office. 

At the time of the raid in May, officials from the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency had said that there was sufficient evidence to connect Sirois to alleged activity that caused injuries in April to a man in Van Buren, as well as the alleged drug manufacturing facility in Connor.
