First week of August ends with two drug busts for St. Clair DTF

The St. Clair County Drug Task Force was busy last week, arresting three people in two different investigations of drug sales in the Port Huron area.

At 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 2, DTF agents executed a search warrant at a home in the 1600 block of Wells Street, concluding an investigation into methamphetamine sales across the area. They arrested the home’s two residents, a 34-year-old man and a 35-year-old woman, and found methamphetamine and suboxone, as well as tools for weighing and packaging the drugs.

The man and woman are facing charges of possession of a controlled substance, possession with intent to distribute, and maintaining a drug house. The US Border Patrol K-9 unit assisted with the investigation.

The next day, Wednesday, August 3, DTF agents executed a search warrant at an apartment in Port Huron’s 600 block of Taylor Street that was suspected of housing heroin sales. A prepackaged dealer amount of heroin was located in the apartment, with the 60-year-old suspect was located and arrested at a local gas station.

He is currently in St. Clair County Jail awaiting arraignment.
