PORT HURON, MI – More crystal methamphetamine has been taken off the streets following an investigation by the St. Clair County Drug Task Force.
According to Sheriff Tim Donnellon, the DTF conducted the investigation into sales of crystal meth in the Port Huron area. On Monday, May 16th, 2016, DTF members observed a suspect driving a 1997 Ford in the area of 11th Street and Cypress in the city of Port Huron. With the assistance of the Port Huron Police Road Patrol, a traffic stop was made on the vehicle.
A Port Huron Police K-9 Unit was called to assist. The K-9 searched the vehicle, finding $2000 worth of crystal meth inside, which was then seized by the DTF. Also seized were the vehicle, cell phone, scales and drug packaging materials.
A 35-year-old Port Huron man was arrested and lodged at the St. Clair County Intervention and Detention Center. He is expected to be arraigned Thursday on charges including possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver, maintaining a drug vehicle, parole violation and being a habitual offender.
