Suspects in high speed chase through St. Clair County arraigned; live meth lab found during investigation

(PORT HURON) -- A high speed chase through St. Clair County ended with the arrest of three suspects Wednesday afternoon and the discovery of a meth lab. Several law enforcement agencies were involved in the chase, which reached speeds near 100 mph at times. Captain Jeff Baker of the Port Huron Police Department says the incident began around 3:30 p.m. when an officer attempted to stop a vehicle near Electric Avenue and 10th Street. One of the passengers was wanted for three outstanding felony warrants. The chase ensued south on Electric Avenue into Marysville, St. Clair and Marine City. Officers say the vehicle changed direction in Marine City and headed north back towards Port Huron. The driver of the vehicle lost control at the intersection of Military and Reid Streets and was stopped by a Marysville Police cruiser. There were no injuries reported. 32-year old Peter Gross was arraigned on charges of larceny in a building, assault with a dangerous weapon and second offense domestic violence stemming from an incident that took place earlier in the week. Gross was arraigned on new charges Friday of operating/maintaining a meth lab, possession of methamphetamine and resisting and obstructing officers. His bond was set at $15,000 on the outstanding felony charges and $50,000 on the new charges. 30-year old Teresa Monzo was arraigned on charges of operating/maintaining a meth lab, third-degree fleeing and eluding, and driving with a suspended license. Her bond was set at $50,000. The third suspect, 28-year old Lucas Bartley, was arraigned on a charge of operating/maintaining a meth lab. His bond was set at $25,000. Preliminary exams have been set for March 12.
