OSHTEMO TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) – A 34-year-old Kalamazoo man was arrested Thursday afternoon in Oshtemo Township when police found a  “one-pot” methamphetamine lab concealed inside his coat.

He also had finished meth, marijuana and a digital scale in his possession, according to a news release from the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety.

Police searched his vehicle and found several meth lab components.

The bust occurred as Kalamazoo Valley Enforcement Team officers from the Community Outreach Problem Solving Division (COPS) executed a search warrant at a residence in the  5500 block of Coddington Lane. A 32-year-old woman and her two children were located in that residence, police said, as well as meth, packaging equipment, scales and meth paraphernalia.

Children’s Protective Services was called to the scene and removed the kids from the home.

The male suspect was taken to the Kalamazoo County Jail on charges of operating/maintaining a meth lab, possession of meth, possession of marijuana, and an outstanding warrant. The female resident will be facing meth possession charges in the near future, police said.

Anyone with more information about this incident is asked to call COPS at 269.337.8880 or  Silent Observer at 269.343.2100.
