B&E results in meth lab bust


 

Troopers from the Michigan State Police Lakeview Post were called to a breaking and entering in progress of an unoccupied home on Tuesday, January 26, about 7 p.m. The homeowner was out of state in California. Upon arrival, the Troopers located a vehicle in the driveway and contacted the homeowner, who gave permission for the Troopers to search the home. While checking the home, they observed evidence related to the use of methamphetamine.

A 37-year-old male and 17-year-old female were found inside the residence. While speaking with the male and female, the male admitted to possessing a one-pot meth lab in his vehicle in the driveway.

CMET (Central Michigan Enforcement Team) was called in to assist with the one pot meth lab.  The male suspect was arrested for unlawful entry and an outstanding warrant.  Additional charges are pending in relation to the manufacturing methamphetamine. The names are being withheld pending formal charges and arraignments.

Troopers were assisted on scene by the Montcalm County Sheriff’s Department and CMET.

A Sparta man will spend time in prison after a traffic stop last spring turned up components of a mobile meth lab in his vehicle.

Derek John Rider, 31, was traveling along 17 Mile in Cedar Springs, east of US131, on May 9, 2015, when he was pulled over by police. They found methamphetamine and items to make it in his vehicle.

Rider pleaded guilty last month to manufacturing meth, and in exchange, a charge of maintaining a meth lab involving hazardous waste and a habitual offender charge were dropped. He was sentenced to a minimum of four years and three months and a maximum of 30 years in prison.

Rider was previously convicted in 2014 on a charge of possession of methamphetamine and sentenced to two years probation. Most recently he has served time in the Kent County jail for operating while intoxicated and operating while intoxicated with a blood alchol content over .17.
