Neighbors React To Meth Bust In Big Rapids Twp.

Posted: Updated:

Neighbors are concerned in one Northern Michigan community after a man was busted for making meth.

The Central Michigan Enforcement Team arrested 54-year-old Kevin Tucker Wednesday for manufacturing meth at his home in Big Rapids Township in Mecosta County.

Police say they received information in October about Tucker's suspected involvement in making meth. That led to an investigation and a search warrant that was executed at his home.

CMET took evidence from the scene that indicated Tucker was making meth using a method known as the Red Phosphorous Method. This method is not as common as other methods of production.

Neighbors say the barn is where the meth making materials were being taken from. They were shocked to learn what was going in their neighborhood.

9&10's Breelynn Martin and Photojournalist Tony Zyber spoke with a few people who live nearby.

Tucker is charged with making meth, owning a building to make meth, owning equipment to make meth, operating a meth lab with hazardous waste, and possession of meth.

Tucker is out on bond and will return to court on Nov. 19.
