The Central Michigan Enforcement Team (CMET) and the Michigan State Police Lakeview Post investigated a clandestine methamphetamine laboratory in the City of Greenville on Sunday, January 19.

MSP Lakeview troopers responded to the scene in an attempt to arrest the homeowner on an outstanding warrant and investigate the reports of illegal activity taking place at the residence. When troopers from the Lakeview Post attempted to make contact with the residents, they refused to answer the door. The residence was secured and a search warrant was obtained.

The Michigan State Police Emergency Response Team responded to the scene. After a brief standoff, the occupants of the residence exited and were arrested. CMET then responded and a clandestine methamphetamine laboratory was removed from the residence.

Arrested was John Vogl, 43; Cassaundra Kidder, 22; and a 17 year old male. All were arrested and lodged at the Montcalm County Jail on methamphetamine related charges.

CMET was assisted at the scene by Michigan State Police Lakeview Post, Greenville Department of Public Safety, and the Michigan State Police Emergency Response Team.  CMET is a multi-jurisdictional drug task force operating in Montcalm, Newaygo, Mecosta and Ionia County. CMET consists of detectives from the Michigan State Police, Montcalm County Sheriff’s Department, Ionia County Sheriff’s Department, Newaygo County Sheriff’s Department, Mecosta County Sheriff’s Department, Big Rapids Department of Public Safety and Ferris State University Department of Public Safety.

This investigation continues and anyone with information can contact Silent Observer or CMET at 1-800-342-0406.

Something doesn’t smell right


 

When a Montcalm County Sheriff’s Deputy investigated an assault complaint last week, on Huron Drive in Winfield Township, he caught a whiff of something in the air from next door.

According to police, the deputy was trying to locate a witness to an assault when he smelled the overwhelming odor of marijuana coming from a neighbor’s residence.  When the deputy went to the residence and questioned the neighbor, a 42-year-old man, the suspect told the deputy that he was a medical marijuana cardholder. Upon further questioning, the suspect admitted that he had an indoor grow operation and was a little over on his 12 plants. He said he had about 30 plants.

The Central Michigan Enforcement Team was contacted, and their investigation showed that the man had 140 plants—nearly 10 times the number allowed. He was also in possession of loose marijuana over 2.5 ounces, and a large amount of marijuana grow equipment.

The investigation was turned over to CMET, and an arrest had not yet been made.
