U.P.S.E.T. arrests two men in separate drug-related incidents

The Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team arrested two men in separate incidents on drug charges.

Detectives arrested a 44-year-old Escanaba man Monday on one count of manufacturing meth, a twenty-year felony.

In December, deputies from the Delta County Sheriff’s Department went to a residence for a well-being check at 4477 M-35 in Ford River Township.  Deputies found meth-related components at the residence, and meth responders from U.P.S.E.T. removed the hazardous materials.

Officials say the suspect was a resident of the home.

U.P.S.E.T. officials say the man was already lodged in the Delta County Jail on an unrelated charges.  His bond is set at $5,000 and is expected to be arraigned Tuesday or Wednesday.

In a separate case, detectives arrested a 39-year-old Menominee man after a traffic stop on the Hattie Street Bridge in Menominee.

He was arrested Saturday morning and lodged in the Menominee County Jail on two charges:  one count of delivery of a schedule 4 narcotic and delivery of heroin.  The suspect has since posted bond.

Additional charges are pending.
