WATERLOO TWP., MI — A tip and surveillance by the Waterloo Township Police Department led to the arrest of a suspected methamphetamine dealer and manufacturer.

Campbell was arraigned Monday on one count of manufacturing and delivering methamphetamine, according to Jackson County District Court records. He remains in jail on a $50,000 bond.
Waterloo officers received a tip Sunday of drug activity near a business on M-52 in the township and set up surveillance, Cottrell wrote. After watching the suspected drug deal, officers stopped the car suspected of selling the meth and found materials commonly involved in making the drug. The other half of the deal was stopped as well and suspected meth was found.
Officers arrested Campbell, the suspected dealer, and are still investigating other people possibly involved, Cottrell wrote. A search early Monday morning at Campbell’s latest residence in Stockbridge revealed more components suspected in the manufacturing of meth.
Campbell was out of jail on bond for a recent domestic violence offense, according to district court records. There is a pretrial hearing in the domestic violence case scheduled for Thursday. Campbell’s preliminary examination for the meth-related charges is scheduled for Oct. 23.
