Officers from the Kalamazoo Valley Enforcement Team, acting on a citizen’s tips of reports of methamphetamine trafficking, contacted a 44 year old female Kalamazoo resident after she was seen leaving a residence in the 100 block of W. Dutton. The female suspect was found to be in possession of methamphetamine, packaged for sale, pseudoephedrine, and key components for methamphetamine manufacturing. This female was arrested on two outstanding felony warrants, one of which was for a previous meth lab investigation, and on two new charges of Manufacturing Methamphetamine and Possession With Intent to Deliver Methamphetamine.
