2 arrested after Houghton County meth lab bust

STANTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WLUC) - Two people were arrested Monday after the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team investigated a meth lab in Houghton County.

The Houghton County Sheriff's Department first responded 16187 Liminga Road in Stanton Township after receiving reports of a suspicious situation. After making contact with two people at the residence, deputies saw several meth components. UPSET detectives were called in.

A 21-year-old woman was arrested for a probation violation and tested positive for five different drugs. A 23-year-old man was arrested on a three-count felony warrant stemming from an UPSET marijuana investigation earlier this year.

UPSET detectives got a search warrant for the home and seized and removed components used to manufacture meth. The investigation is ongoing, and additional charges are expected.

The Houghton County Sheriff's Department, Michigan State Police Calumet Post and Stanton Township Fire Department all assisted UPSET.
