Reed City Home Raided for Marijuana, Man Arrested for Selling Drugs to Teenagers
"It’s immeasurable, the importance of having identified this person."
An investigation months in the making landed a man in jail.
Investigators say he was selling marijuana to teenagers.
A tip led State Police to the man in Osceola County.
The Traverse Narcotics Team made the marijuana arrest last night at a trailer home in Reed City.
TNT says their investigation lasted three months.
A search warrant led them to a large, illegal marijuana grow inside the home.
They seized more 21 marijuana plants and processed marijuana ready to sell, along with a crossbow, a gun and tools used to process the drug.
They say interviews suggest the man aimed to sell his product to high school students… and this was an important arrest.
"It’s very important," says Kip Belcher, 7th District Taskforce Commander out of Gaylord. "They may very well have prevented the distribution of marijuana product to additional high school students that may have become involved with it or potentially even younger kids so extremely important."
The taskforce wished to keep the home’s location confidential until after the man is charged… which should happen tomorrow.
