Smith circuit court arraignment waived

Brodie Smith

MARQUETTE — The Friday arraignment of one man arrested in a mid-March methamphetamine bust in Marquette was waived.

Brodie John Smith, 26, of Marquette was scheduled to face arraignment in 25th Circuit Court Friday on one count of controlled substances — controlled substance-operating/maintaining laboratory involving methamphetamine, a 20-year felony.

Smith was arraigned on the charge March 19 in 96th District Court before being bound over to circuit court.

The charge stems from a March 16 incident when Smith and Robert James Nancarrow, 37, of Marquette, were arrested after police searched a West Fair Avenue home and seized “an overwhelming amount of meth components, finished meth product and two firearms,” according to a press release from the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team.

Smith and Nancarrow were arrested and lodged at the Marquette County Jail following the search. Bond was set at $100,000 each for Smith and Nancarrow.

Smith now has a bond hearing set for June 6 in circuit court. Nancarrow is scheduled to face arraignment in circuit court Friday.
