The man arrested last Wednesday night for maintaining a meth lab in his home was arraigned on the charges Friday, April 17.

Jason Andrew Butler, 36, of Cedar Springs, 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 the suspect’s home.

Butler was arraigned Thursday, April 16, on two charges of stealing and retaining a financial transaction device without consent, with a bond set of $2,500. On Friday, April 17, he was arraigned on one charge of delivering or manufacturing methamphetamine and one charge of maintaining a lab involving hazardous waste. He was also charged as a habitual offender, 4th offense. Bond was set at $25,000 cash or surety.

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.
