Police discover meth lab

Cutline: Police swarmed the area of First and Cherry Street, after a meth lab was discovered in a home there.

Police swarmed the area of First and Cherry Street, after a meth lab was discovered in a home there.

On Wednesday evening, April 15, Kent County Sheriff Department Deputies and Detectives located methamphetamine and a meth clandestine laboratory in the City of Cedar Springs.

According to Sgt. Jason Kelley, of the Cedar Springs Unit, Deputies and Detectives arrested a Cedar Springs man 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 the suspect’s home.

The Kent Area Narcotics Enforcement Team (KANET) led the investigation. Michigan State Police Meth Clandestine Lab Response Team responded 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.

The male suspect was lodged at Kent County Correctional Facility on his outstanding warrant and charges will be sought relating to the Meth and Clandestine Lab.

The suspect, not yet officially identified by police, looks to be Jason Butler, 36, of Cedar Springs. He was previously arrested earlier this year on January 15, on four warrants out of Ionia County, and wanted for credit card fraud in Kent County. The Post will update the story next week after his arraignment.

    Way to go!!! Cedar Springs could be a very nice town if a real effort was made to remove the “trash.” One cannot expect improvement without having the fortitude to stand up for what you want.
