A Calumet man was arrested following an investigation into a meth lab last week.
According to the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team (UPSET), a 39-year-old Calumet man is charged with one count of operating a methamphetamine lab on Monday, Feb. 10.
His name is not being released until he's arraigned in the 97th District Court in Houghton.
The case is being reviewed by the Houghton County Prosecutor's Office and additional charges are pending.
The investigation is ongoing at this time, and additional arrests are possible.
On February 6, detectives from UPSET executed a search warrant at a home on Caledonia Street in Calumet Township.
A meth lab was located in the basement along with a small amount of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
Detectives recovered numerous components used in the manufacturing process, including pseudoephedrine. Detectives also removed 11 five-gallon buckets of waste products from the house.
At that time, UPSET was assisted by the Houghton County Sheriff’s Department, Michigan State Police Emergency Support Team, MSP Calumet Post and the Calumet Township Fire Department.
