KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — Before opioids and heroin, it was methamphetamine Michigan State Police primarily had to contend with.

“Methamphetamine has been a problem in southwest Michigan since the 1990s,” said MSP Lt. Richard Pazder, who works in Battle Creek.

Pazder says there’s good news and bad news when it comes to meth.

The good news: The number of meth labs seized in Berrien, Branch, Calhoun, Kalamazoo, St. Joseph and Van Buren counties has dropped from 407 in 2015 to 240 in 2016. So far this year, the number of seized labs is 105.
