SSCENTNEWFIELD TWP. — A 35-year-old Hesperia woman has been arraigned on a three-count felony warrant stemming from her involvement in a meth lab last March at a home in the 7300 block of Loop Road.

Ricky Marie Hall was arraigned in 78th District Court in Hart last week on charges of delivery/manufacture of methamphetamine; operating/maintaining a laboratory in the presence of a minor; and operating/maintaining a laboratory involving methamphetamine, according to a State, Sheriffs’, Chiefs’ Enforcement of Narcotics Team (SSCENT) press release issued Tuesday afternoon, Aug. 25.

The most serious charges are punishable by up to 20 years in prison and/or a $100,000 fine, the press release states. Hall is currently incarcerated in the Newaygo County Jail on related charges.

Detectives from SSCENT, Central Michigan Enforcement Team (CMET), and troopers from the Hart post of the Michigan State Police executed a search warrant in the 7300 block of Loop Road. During the execution of the search warrant, several items used in meth production were located inside the home.  Meth production involves the use of hazardous materials and requires specially-trained technicians to clean up the site. Members of the Michigan State Police Methamphetamine Enforcement Team responded to the scene to dismantle the laboratory and remove the hazardous materials from the residence.
