LAKE LINDEN – Four people were arrested Thursday, March 16, in Houghton County on charges related to the delivery of heroin and firearm violations.
The Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team (UPSET) said detectives had been investigating the sale of heroin in Houghton County for several weeks. They identified three people who traveled from Detroit to Houghton County who were involved in several drug sales.
UPSET Team Commander Tim Sholander said a search warrant at a home on Calumet Street in Lake Linden resulted in the seizure of a small amount of heroin, cash from suspected drug sales and a loaded shotgun. Members of the Michigan State Police Emergency Support Team assisted UPSET detectives with the search warrant.
The four are lodged at the Houghton County Jail. Two suspects face charges for delivery of heroin, a third suspect was charged with loitering in a drug house and a fourth was arrested for being a felon in possession of a firearm.
UPSET was assisted by Lake Linden Village Police, Houghton County Sheriff’s Department, the Michigan State Police Emergency Support Team, Michigan State Police K-9 team, Michigan State Police Hometown Security Team, and troopers from the Calumet Post.
