MARSHALL TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) - A tip led Calhoun County authorities to a Marshall Township residence where methamphetamine was being manufactured.
Deputies obtained and executed a search warrant at 3:15 a.m. Wednesday at the home in the 17000 block of 15 Mile Road.
A deputy was bitten in an arm by "the family's aggressive pit bull," according to a news release. The deputy was treated for minor injuries at Oaklawn Hospital in Marshall and released.
A 48-year-old man, two women and a 3-year-old child were in the home at the time.
Police searched the residence and found a suspected meth lab, and called Children's Protective Services personnel who came and removed the child.
Deputies wore protective gear to remove the meth lab items due to the very dangerous fumes.
Authorities will seek an arrest warrant for the homeowner in connection with charges of manufacturing and delivering methamphetamine.
Members of the Michigan State Police, the Albion Department of Public Safety, Homer Police Department and Marshall Township Fire Department assisted at the scene.
