Mackinac Co. man pleads to drug charge

A Cedarville man has pleaded guilty to a drug charge.

Twenty-four-year-old Thomas Dowdell has admitted to one count of delivery or manufacture of marijuana.

He’ll be sentenced on July 18th.

The Straits Area Narcotics Team bought marijuana at Dowdell’s home in February.

Before the SANE drug team could carry out the search warrant they obtained, Dowdell was pulled over for a traffic stop in Sault Ste. Marie, and he was arrested during that stop.

SANE then obtained a second search warrant as a result of the traffic stop.

Between the two separate searches of Dowdell’s house, SANE says they found long guns, cash, morphine and other prescription drugs.
