Calumet Woman, Lake Linden Man Nabbed on Meth Charge

Two Houghton County residents have been arrested on drug charges.

Officials with the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team say the pair was taken into custody Wednesday, after a two-week investigation. They are identified as a 22-year-old Calumet woman, and a 38-year-old Lake Linden man.

UPSET detectives had developed information that the suspects were living in a U-Haul truck and selling meth out of the back of the vehicle. Detectives made several purchases of methamphetamine over a five day period from the suspects and then set up surveillance on the truck in the backyard of a residence in Calumet. The suspects left the residence in the U-Haul and were stopped on Pine St in Calumet. Detectives seized a small amount of methamphetamine, digital scales and $800 cash which included the money used by detectives to make the purchases over the previous five days.

The initial investigation during the traffic stopped revealed a connection with the 69-year-old man from Hazel Park, MI who was arrested on May 14th by the Houghton County Sheriff’s Department.

The suspects names will not be released until their arraignment in 97th District Court, Houghton County. The case is being reviewed by the Houghton County Prosecutor’s office and additional charges are expected.

UPSET was assisted by MSP–Calumet Post, Houghton County Sheriff and MSP-Calumet K-9 unit.
