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.
