      Meth charges dropped, marijuana charge sticks

      The man authorities say was involved in locking down two Marquette County hospitals in October was in court Thursday on meth charges.

      Twenty-four-year-old Charles Rogers was in Marquette District Court charged with operating a meth lab. A plea agreement had been reached, with Rogers pleading guilty to possession of marijuana. The other charges were dismissed. This all started in October with a report of a possible exposure to a World War II nerve agent. This caused a lockdown at Bell in Ishpeming and Marquette General Hospitals. Investigation of the incident led police to a Marquette apartment where an active meth lab was discovered.
