Chippewa Co. meth defendant sentenced

A Chippewa County man will spend three to 20 years in prison on charges related to a meth bust last fall.

Joshua Lee Sheber, 24

Twenty-four-year-old Joshua Sheber of Kincheloe has been sentenced on two counts of operating a meth lab and one count of methamphetamine possession.

The Straits Area Narcotics Team carried out the meth lab bust last September at a home on Red Cedar Street in Kincheloe.

The Michigan Department of Human Services also removed a young child from the home.

Two other people were also arrested in the raid.

They are 28-year-old Brian Smallman and 23-year-old Angela Smallman, both of Kincheloe.

They’re both scheduled for sentencing next Tuesday, April 9th, in Chippewa County Circuit Court.
