Drug Bust In Houghton

A Grand Rapids man is facing multiple charges following a drug bust by the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team.

Detectives from UPSET-West conducted the month-long investigation that led to the arrest of 19-year old Jon David Ettinger on Thursday.

The investigation found that the suspect was allegedly selling marijuana, acid, and prescription medication in Houghton County.

Detectives executed two search warrants in the City of Houghton and seized marijuana packaged for distribution along with prescription medication suspected of being altered with acid.

Ettinger was arraigned Friday on three counts of Delivery and Manufacture of Marijuana, felonies punishable by up to four years in prison.

More charges may be issued in the case.

The suspect is currently lodged in the Houghton County Jail. He is scheduled to appear for a preliminary exam on February 17th.

UPSET-West was assisted by officers from Michigan Tech University, Houghton City Police Department, Houghton County Sheriff’s Department, and Michigan State Police K-9 Unit.
