GOBLES, Mich. (WOOD) - A woman temporarily lost custody of her young daughter following the investigation of a methamphetamine lab bust at her home.
Van Buren County sheriff's deputies were dispatched around 10 p.m. Monday to a report of a domestic assault in the 300 block of E. Main Street in Gobles.
A 24-year-old man from Gobles apparently involved in the incident had left the scene before police arrived.
Deputies talked with a 29-year-old woman at the scene and noticed she appeared to be under the influence of methamphetamine, according to a news release.
Deputies saw the woman's 2-year-old daughter in the residence and then contacted Children's Protective Services. The girl was temporarily removed from her mother's custody.
Police received consent to search the home and found several "one pot" methamphetamine vessels, gas generators in the garage, as well as components used in the production of methamphetamine.
The methamphetamine lab components were collected and disposed of by the Van Buren County Narcotics bureau.
The report will be forwarded to the Van Buren County Prosecutor's Office for operating/maintaining a methamphetamine lab and other appropriate charges.
