      Meth dump site discovered on trail

      The Marquette Police Department was contacted about a possible methamphetamine dump site on Thursday afternoon.

      According to police, the dump site was discovered by a person on trail #8, just west of M553. The person that discovered the dump site contacted police immediately, and officers responding to the scene discovered a white bag filled with meth lab components.

      Police say that 11 meth incidents, including labs and dump sites, have been cleaned up within the city in 2013. If you notice plastic tubing, stripped batteries, fertilizer, Coleman fuel cans, and soda bottles with strange liquids inside you should contact local law enforcement.

      Police also urge people not to touch any potential meth lab dump sites, as the contents are dangerous.
