“One Pot” meth lab found in Delta County

Detectives from the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team uncovered a “One Pot” meth lab Thursday.

Deputies from the Delta County Sheriff’s Department asked for UPSET’s assistance in identifying a possible meth lab at a Ford River Township residence off of M-35. Officials from both agencies executed on a search warrant upon arrival, and seized a “One Pot” cooking device and other components used for manufacturing Methamphetamine. UPSET detectives then transported the hazardous waste to an approved holding site.

A male and female subject were arrested at the scene on unrelated charges. The report will be forwarded to the Delta County Prosecutor’s Office for review and additional charges.

UPSET detectives were assisted in the operation by the Delta County Sheriff’s Department, the Ford River Township Fire Department, and Escanaba Public Safety.
