UPSET detectives arrest one on meth-related charge in Marquette County

MARQUETTE — One person was arrested and jailed for charges related to possession of meth after detectives from the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team on Wednesday received information that “a known drug user recently purchased some household products that could be used in combination to manufacture meth,” according to an UPSET release.

Detectives were able to identify the suspect and located him and a female suspect at his cabin located on South Camp Road in Ishpeming Township, police said.

Detectives arrested the suspect for possession of meth and obtained a search warrant for the suspect’s vehicle and cabin. Detectives also obtained a search warrant for a second residence located along Elm Street in Gwinn, according to the release.

A search of these properties resulted in the seizure of components used to manufacture meth, police said. The suspect was lodged in the Marquette County Jail for charges related to possession of meth.

The female suspect was released. The name of both suspects is being withheld at this time and the investigation remains ongoing, police said.

UPSET was assisted by troopers from the MSP Negaunee Post, MSP Hometown Security Team, MSP Emergency Support Team and the Forsyth Township Police Department.
