HURON COUNTY, Mich. -- After a two week investigation into illegal drug activity in the area, police arrested a 34-year-old man and seized several glass vials containing a powdery substance believed to be DMT (Dimethyltryptamine) Oct. 23.

DMT is a powerful psychedelic drug.

Police served a drug search warrant at a residence on Bruce Street in Kinde.

Brandon W. Richmond was arrested for felony possession with intent to deliver marijuana.

Richmond was taken to jail and later posted a $1,500 bond and was released.

Police said the drug is rare to mid-Michigan even though research indicates its existence across the world for decades.

"The effects are said to be very hallucinogenic, more so than LSD," police said in a press release Oct. 31.

The material was transported to the Michigan State Police Crime Lab for analysis.

Several pounds of processed marijuana in various forms, which included butter were also seized by police.
