Huron County Hits Hard on Meth Menace – Sebewaing Drug Bust Nets Narcotics

In a bold strike against the drug trade, the Huron County Drug Task Force and patrol deputies have pulled off a significant Sebewaing drug bust. Their haul? Over one ounce of meth, with a street value estimated at $2,600, was seized after a strategic traffic stop turned into a narcotic crackdown.

Substantial Seizure Spells Success for Sheriff’s Squad

  • A Traffic Stop with a Twist: On the evening of November 7th, a routine patrol spiraled into a major drug seizure in Sebewaing. The deputies, backed by an ongoing investigation, stopped a 2002 Nissan Xterra only to discover more than they bargained for.
  • The Contraband Catalog: Alongside the meth, officers confiscated a slew of related paraphernalia, a cell phone, and a small stash of cash. But the real kicker? The drugs were craftily concealed in a container masquerading as a fast-food bag.
  • Photos as Proof: The Sheriff’s Department has released images of the concealed meth, underlining the cunning methods drug dealers employ to transport their illegal wares.
