Sergeant Sutherlund asked for and received consent to search the suspect vehicle. 

Upon searching the van, Sergeant Sutherlund found a white, crystal-type substance that field-tested positive for methamphetamine.  Also found were drain cleaners, lithium batteries, filters, and plastic bottles.

The man was arrested and taken to Midland County Jail.  He remains in jail waiting to be arraigned.
