Police: Meth made in motel room


TRAVERSE CITY — Police suspect customers at a local motel made meth in their room.

The Traverse Narcotics Team executed a search warrant for a room at the Shadowland Motel about 8 a.m. today, Michigan State Police Detective Lt. Daniel King said. They seized drug paraphernalia and marijuana from inside the motel space.

Police also collected component chemicals and equipment used in the production of methamphetamine, but King said these were not found in the room. He would not say where officers located the chemicals and equipment.

King said the paraphernalia will be tested for traces of methamphetamine.

Police arrested one woman on an unrelated misdemeanor warrant. Two additional suspects were not at the motel.

An investigation into the lab and the two suspects is ongoing, King said.
