COLDWATER (WTVB) - The meth scourge seems to be ever present, even though it’s not always readily visible or making news headlines. However, last weekend in Branch county, it was in Bronson Township where two suspected meth lab sites were busted with two brothers arrested.
Then the Sheriff’s Department Meth Response Team got busy again late Tuesday lasting through Wednesday morning. It led to the arrest yesterday of four people. An anonymous tip phoned into Central Dispatch set it into motion with word late Tuesday about a meth cook at a home on West High Street in Union City. A village police officer had several suspects in mind from previous complaints at the residence. Late Tuesday, a car left the home and was located a short time later in Coldwater where 18-year-old Madalyn Mohrhardt of Coldwater was picked up for possession of methamphetamine. Then a search warrant was executed Wednesday morning and deputies report that 32-year-old Chad Goldey, 36-year-old Jason Reincke and 24-year-old Timothy Diamond Junior were discovered inside the house along with a quantity of methamphetamine. The trio was jailed for disorderly conduct as well as Goldey facing a charge of meth possession. Additional charges are expected.
