PENNFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Investigators say one of two people arrested during a drug bust was caught pouring ingredients to make methamphetamine down a bathroom drain.
Around 3 a.m. Monday, investigators were tipped off to a meth lab in the 900 block of Capital Avenue NE in Pennfield Township, northeast of Battle Creek.
The Calhoun County Sheriff’s office says during a search of the home, they found an active meth lab.
Although a 44-year-old Battle Creek man was caught trying to get rid of the evidence, deputies say they recovered the lab and a large amount of meth waste.
The man was arrested and remains in jail on unrelated charges. A 41-year-old Battle Creek woman was also arrested on unrelated charges.
Authorities are withholding their names until they’re formally charged in the case.
The investigation is ongoing.
