Four UP residents held on meth counts

 


Four people were arrested in the Upper Peninsula this week on meth-related charges, according to the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team.

On Tuesday, UPSET detectives arrested two Marquette residents after meth components and a “finished meth product” were located in Negaunee.

Both suspects were incarcerated in the Marquette County Jail for possession of meth and conspiracy to manufacture meth.

On Thursday, meth components were removed from the Marquette Motor Lodge on U.S. 41 in Chocolay Township. Investigating officers found a man slumped over in a chair. He was unresponsive and disoriented.

Officers found meth-related components in the room and they were removed.

The man was taken to Marquette General Hospital for evaluation.

Also on Thursday, a 45-year-old woman from Forsyth Township in Marquette County was arrested on three drug-related counts, including manufacturing meth.

Detectives removed meth-related components from the scene and the suspect’s 13-year-old son was turned over to the Department of Human Services.

The names of the suspects weren’t released.
