Kalamazoo, MI: On March 24th, investigators from the Kalamazoo Valley Enforcement Team teamed up with parole agents from the Michigan Department of Corrections to conduct late night compliance checks on subjects paroled in the County of Kalamazoo. These checks are to ensure subjects on parole are obeying their restrictions and are living in safe and supportive environments.
While conducting a compliance check in the 3700 block of Vanrick Dr, investigators and agents made contact with a 37 year old man who is on Parole and a 26 year old female. While speaking with the subjects, investigators and agents located an active methamphetamine lab and finished methamphetamine in their vehicle. The 37 year old man was arrested for parole violations and lodged at the Kalamazoo County Jail. The 26 year old female was released from the scene pending charges. Charges of Operating / Maintaining a Methamphetamine lab and Possession of Methamphetamine will be sought against both suspects. Certified Methamphetamine responders from KDPS responded to the scene and conducted the Methamphetamine lab clean up.
This is the second time in the past seven months that the same male Parolee has been arrested for Methamphetamine related charges during a late night compliance check conducted by KVET and MDOC.
Anyone with information regarding illegal drugs or firearms activity is urged to contact KVET at 269-337-8880, or report an anonymous tip to Silent Observer at 269-343-2100 or www.kalamazoosilentobserver.com.
