The suspects involved in the meth lab in Chassell were arraigned in Houghton County District Court Monday.
Twenty-six-year-old Michael Newberry from Chassell and his 25-year-old girlfriend, Nichole Saatio, who is also from Chassell, are facing two felony counts.
Both are charged with possession of methamphetamine and ecstasy and operating or maintaining a laboratory involving methamphetamine.
The Houghton County Sheriff's Department said they discovered the meth lab after a short investigation Sunday afternoon.
â??Do you have anything to say before I set bond, Ms. Saatio?â?? asked Judge Wisiti.
â??I wasn't running a meth lab. I wasn't manufacturing or delivering any of these,â?? said Saatio.
Officials say a small scale meth operation was in place in a vacant trailer on the backside of a home located off of US-41 in Chassell Township.
Newberry and Saatioâ??s preliminary hearing is scheduled for this Friday.
A probate hearing for Saatioâ??s two children was also held today. They were placed in DHS custody.
