The Post reported last month that the Kent County Sheriff Department was searching for Joseph Clayton Butler, 34, in relation to copper wire theft. He reportedly stole the wire from a local business, then sold it in Grand Rapids.

According to Sgt. Jason Kelley, he will now be facing felony drug charges as well. Butler was arrested on Main Street, in Cedar Springs, on February 10, on prior warrants. During the arrest, he was found to be in possession of heroin and components of a meth lab.

Butler was lodged at the Kent County jail, and was arraigned on February 11 on the wire theft charge, a 5-year felony; operating/maintaining a meth lab; possession of narcotics; and habitual offender (4th offense). A $50,000 cash or surety bond was set on the drug charges, and $15,000 bond on the wire theft charge.
