ANVIL, Mich. (WLUC) -

UPDATE April 22:

A man has been arraigned on charges related to a drug best that happened in Gogebic County on April 17.

24-year-old Christopher James Michelic has been charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of a firearm, and assault.

His next court date has not been scheduled.

ORIGINAL STORY: One man sits behind bars on three charges, including drug possession, after evidence was found Saturday that shows he was maintaining a drug house, police said.

Troopers White and Fezatt from the Michigan State Police Wakefield Post responded to a complaint at an Anvil home for domestic violence and drugs. There, authorities learned who the suspect was and attempted to make contact with him at his home in Ironwood.

Upon arrival, drug paraphernalia and narcotic activity was found.

As the drug activity was being observed, the suspect was seen driving by the home. Troopers initiated a traffic stop for further investigation and placed the man under arrest for possession of methamphetamine, possession of firearm and assault.

A search warrant was obtained and executed on the suspect’s residence and vehicles where the drug house evidence was found.

The suspect was taken to Gogebic County Jail. The investigation is still ongoing. The man’s name will be released after he’s arraigned.
