A North Reading man allegedly connected to a drug-making lab found in his home was arraigned Wednesday in Woburn District Court, one week after a warrant was issued for his arrest, prosecutors said.
Lowell Navarro, 28, was charged with possession with intent to distribute drugs and conspiracy to violate drug laws, according to the Middlesex District Attorney’s office.
Navarro turned himself in to the court on Wednesday. Bail was set at $2,000 cash, prosecutors said.
He is due back in court on April 14.
The alleged drug lab was discovered by firefighters on Feb. 7, when they responded to a report of a house fire at Navarro’s North Reading home.
A small laboratory, equipped with drug making equipment, was found at the home. A white powdery substance found there tested positive for MDMA, prosecutors said.
MDMA is more commonly known as ecastasy.
An arrest warrant was also issued for Jacob Stanish, 31, who is believed to live in the house. An arraignment date has not yet been set for him, prosecutors said.
