UPSET arrests continue to pile up

Three men have been arrested this week in Ontonagon County in connection to drug crimes.

The Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team (UPSET) and troopers from the Michigan State Police post in Wakefield picked up two men from the Village of Ontonagon thanks to unrelated investigations. 29-year-old Benjamin Hess and 30-year-old Mathew Walters were arrested Wednesday and arraigned in 98th District Court. Both men were picked up on multiple counts of Delivery of Methamphetamine, which could result in up to 20 years in prison. Hess is a repeat offender, which brings its own charge and his bond was set at $50,000 compared to $5,000 for Walters.

On the same day, also in Ontonagon, a 37-year-old man from Baraga was arrested for Delivery of Methamphetamine. His name has not been released, and arraignment is expected soon in 97th District Court.
