The Huron County Sheriff??s department spent twelve hours Friday executing three search warrants for illegal drug activities involving meth in the Port Austin area.
These search warrants were the results of several months of investigation.
The first warrant was at 298 Washington St. in Port Austin. This search resulted in finding several syringes and other drug paraphernalia, along with meth manufacturing items. The home??s 32 year old female renter and her companion were both questioned and released pending further investigation.
The second warrant was served at a hunt club on Sullivan Rd. in Port Austin Township. Investigators found components there that were used to manufacture meth. These items had to be recovered by members of the BAYANET Drug Team as hazardous materials.
The last warrant was served about just over a mile away from the Sullivan Rd. location at 2160 Hunter Rd. in Dwight Township. The result of this search netted more components that were used to manufacture meth and substance believed to be meth.
Also found were several marijuana plants of different sizes being grown in a back bedroom. Members of BAYANET had to remove hazardous material from this location also.
