(BARAGA COUNTY-DICKINSON COUNTY, MI.)–On March 15, 2018 detectives assigned to the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team (UPSET) executed a search warrant at a residence on Puuri Rd in Baraga County. The homeowners, a 34 year old male and 34 year old female, were arrested on March 14, 2018 for operating under the influence of drugs and possession of methamphetamine in Mackinaw County by troopers from the Michigan State Police St. Ignace Post. Detectives assigned to UPSET obtained a search warrant for the suspect’s residence and seized several more grams of methamphetamine, as well as scales, packaging for distribution, and a firearm. The suspects are currently lodged in Mackinaw County Jail and charges in Baraga County are pending review by the Baraga County prosecutor’s office. Detectives were assisted by the Michigan State Police and Baraga County Sheriff’s Department. In Dickinson County one person was arrested after authorities found an active methamphetamine lab Wednesday in an apartment complex near the north junction on U.S. 2, near Iron Mountain. A detective lieutenant with the Dickinson County Sheriff’s Department was helping the Michigan Department of Corrections with a parole visit at one of the apartments at N3976 U.S. 2 about 2 p.m. when they discovered the lab in a closet, according to a press release issued Thursday by the sheriff’s department. They obtained a search warrant to confirm the lab and then contacted the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team for disposal services.
