Jason Andrew Butler, 36, of Cedar Springs, was sentenced to prison last Thursday, June 25, for maintaining a meth lab in his home.

Butler was arrested on April 15, by Kent County Sheriff deputies and detectives on outstanding warrants near the intersection of 1st and Cherry, in the City of Cedar Springs. A subsequent investigation led to the discovery of methamphetamine and a meth lab in his home.

Butler pled guilty, and was sentenced to 8-20 years each on charges of operating and maintaining a meth lab, and delivery or manufacturing methamphetamine. Two charges of stealing a financial transaction device were dropped.

The Kent Area Narcotics Enforcement Team  (KANET) led the investigation.

Michigan State Police Meth Clandestine Lab Response Team responded to the scene to secure and remove the lab. Also assisting with the investigation was Child Protective Services, due to the close proximity of children to the lab. Two minor children were removed from the home pursuant to a court order.

Butler’s older brother, Joseph Clayton Butler, was sentenced to prison in April, for the same offense.
