McBain Meth Operation Uncovered by Tip; Seven People Arrested
An intense confrontation in front of a Missaukee County house.
It’s the center of a meth smurfing investigation.
The Traverse Narcotics Team was first tipped off about the case from a business owner Wednesday.
That person told them several people bought items used to make meth.
From there, the drug team found their car and traced it to a McBain house.
Detectives made two traffic stops.
They arrested four people altogether for smurfing and meth related charges.
The investigating then led detectives to a house, where three others were arrested.
Neighbors say the seven arrests have them alarmed.
"Scared, scared. You see on the news other places that have blown up using that type of a drug and being so close to them it makes you scared. It makes you terrified."
All seven people have yet to be arraigned.
