HARTFORD TOWNSHIP, MI (WKZO) -- Another meth bust in Van Buren County may break up a family. A couple in their 40’s were hauled off to jail and their 9-year-old child turned over to child protective services after the Van Buren County Narcotics unit raided a home 1n Hartford Township and found not only an active meth lab in one room, but a Marijuana Grow Operation in the garage.
Police had to break down two locked doors to find the woman crouching on the stairs to the basement, sitting in a smoky haze created when she tried to destroy a gas generator used in the production of meth.
They found the child upstairs and called child protective services. The two adults face multiple drug manufacture and possession counts.
