MATTESON TOWNSHIP, Mich (WOOD) - Authorities in Branch County on Saturday busted the largest number of methamphetamine labs in one location they had ever seen.
Sixteen different one-pot meth labs were discovered in the home, along with marijuana and firearms in every room except a child's bedroom.
Six people were arrested ranging in age from 17 to 39 years.
Police say the home at 849 Kinter Road in Matteson Township was so dangerous that it posed a threat to homes and nearby Matteson Lake.
A 13-year-old was placed in foster care.
Authorities caught wind that something illegal was going on Saturday when investigating a meth dump site on Bullock Road in Batavia Township.
A narcotics search warrant was authorized for the Sunday morning search on Kinter Road. A cleanup crew removed more than 80 pounds of meth lab waste from the home.
The six suspects will be arraigned on numerous charges including operating and maintaining a meth lab, possession of meth with presence of a minor child, hazardous waste, possession of marijuana, felony firearm, resisting and obstructing police and frequenting a drug house.
