Meth Manufacturing Materials Seized from Three Locations in Port Austin Area

(PORT AUSTIN) -- Three search warrants served last Friday in the Port Austin area resulted in the seizure of meth manufacturing materials, drug paraphernalia, and marijuana plants. Huron County Sheriff Kelly Hanson says the raids were the result of several months of investigation. The first search took place at 298 Washington Street in Port Austin. Officers seized several syringes, other drug paraphernalia, and meth manufacturing items. A 32-year old woman who rents the home and her companion were released pending further investigation. The BAYANET Drug Team was called to assist in the search of the second location due to the amount of hazardous material. Officers found components that were used to manufacture meth at the hunt club on Sullivan Road. The final raid took place a little more than a mile at 2160 Hunter Road in Dwight Township. Officers, with the help of the BAYANET Drug Team, found more evidence of a meth lab and substances believed to be meth. Also seized were marijuana plants of different sizes being grown in a bedroom and drug paraphernalia. A 31-year old woman staying at the residence was arrested on four unrelated felony drug warrants and three unrelated misdemeanor warrants. The 54-year old homeowner was released pending further investigation and the Huron County Health Department was contacted regarding the condition of the home. Sheriff Hanson says more arrests are likely in the coming weeks.
