The Sanilac Drug Task Force received information that a former convicted methamphetamine “Meth” producer and user was again buying pseudoephedrine and was believed to be making and / or using meth.

A check of the person using the NPLEX* system for medication purchases confirmed that products sold with the pseudoephedrine and the quantities needed to make meth was being purchased by the suspect.

Working with the State Parole Agents in Sandusky, it was verified that the person was still on parole and had missed a required scheduled testing for drugs.   The State Parole office scheduled a home visit and requested the Drug Task Force to assist.

Contact was made with the 39 year old male at his residence in the 200 block of Lexington St. in Sandusky. Consent to search was provided and evidence of components for making methamphetamine along with evidence of prior production of meth was discovered on the property.

The Drug Task Force Meth Containment Team was able to secure and remove the hazardous materials found.

The 39 year old parole suspect was taken to the Sanilac County Corrections intake and lodged with a DOC Parole violation detainer.

Meth charges are pending in the case as it is still under investigation and lab results are pending as well.

The Drug Task Force provided the assistance to the Parole office along with the Sandusky Police Department and the St. Clair County Drug K-9 unit.
