Meth lab discovered on Presque Isle

A methamphetamine lab was found in the City of Marquette by the Marquette City Police Department and the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team (UPSET) at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 22 at 1950 Presque Isle Avenue.

Police received a call regarding a possible meth lab from maintenance workers who were working in a home in the apartment complex at the time, according to a police press release.

In just four months, there have been two meth lab incidents in the apartments at 1950 Presque Isle Avenue. The most recent report came after maintenance workers discovered the possible lab while working on the apartment. Detectives later confirmed that the apartment did contain meth lab components.

Detectives confirmed that they found products that were part of a meth lab, which were collected by UPSET detectives. The meth lab was not active at the time.

UPSET detectives are trained in the handling and disposal process of the dangerous products used in lab cleanups.

The press release also said that possible suspects have been identified, and the case is still under investigation.

The meth lab found on Tuesday was the second found in the Presque Isle Apartments since October, when deputies from MPD were called to the apartment complex to investigate a possible exposure of a military nerve agent.

Upon their investigation, detectives found components used in the production of meth.

No other information has been furnished in regards to Tuesday’s incident.
