Police bust two Holland meth labs

HOLLAND, Mich. (WZZM) -- Holland Police say a phoned-in tip led them to two meth labs in separate locations.

Investigators received an anonymous tip about possible methamphetamine manufacturing in a room at the Best Value Inn in the 600 block of East 24th Street.  Officers went to the motel at 9:15 a.m. Friday, and the room occupants allowed police inside.

Officers saw enough evidence to get a search warrant.  Investigators say they found meth and evidence that the drug was being made inside the room.

Members of the West Michigan Enforcement Team (WEMET) determined a locker at a storage facility in the 1100 block of Central Avenue was also being used in making the drug.  They obtained another search warrant and discovered another meth lab.

Specialized meth teams searched both locations and disposed of ingredients and components for making meth.  Michigan State Police clean-up teams spent several hours removing hazardous and potentially explosive materials used in the manufacturing of the drug.

Officers did not arrest anyone related to the meth, but detectives say charges will be filed soon.

Investigators are asking anyone with knowledge of the drug operations to provide them with information by calling Holland Public Safety at (616) 355-1100 or emailing at police@cityofholland.com.  Anonymous tips can be reported toll -free to Silent Observer at 1(877) 887-4536, or by going to Silent Observer's website.
