PAW PAW TOWNSHIP — Michigan State Police seized a mobile meth lab and arrested four people in three apparently separate incidents Thursday.
According to a press release, the following events happened:
Police initiated a traffic stop at the intersection of 56th Avenue and Hamilton Street around 4:30 p.m. The driver continued to drive for a quarter of a mile while pouring the liquid contents of a mobile meth lab onto the floor of his car in hopes that it would not be discovered. The 24-year-old Paw Paw male was arrested for operating and maintaining a mobile meth lab.
While police were investigating a man on a bicycle asked them about the male suspect. Police discovered that the curious bicyclist also had a felony warrant from the Paw Paw Police Department for possession of methamphetamines. That 25-year-old resident was subsequently arrested while riding down the road.
Later in the day, with help from the MSP Southwest Enforcement Team, two residents of a home off Paw Paw Road in Paw Paw Township, a 39-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman, were arrested for outstanding warrants on four counts of delivery and manufacturing of methamphetamine and an additional warrant for contempt of court on a prior meth lab charge.
