      Brandon Meacham

      The two former Iron River men arrested after conservation officers conducted a drug bust have been identified.

      Department of Natural Resources officers arrested 30-year-old Brandon Meacham and 34-year-old Clint Benson last Wednesday after investigating a complaint about drug activity in Iron River.

      Meacham and Benson were arraigned in court on Friday. Meacham remains in jail on $10,000 bond. He is being charged with carrying a concealed weapon, and assault and battery. Meacham is also charged with being a fugitive and failing to appear, causing a bench warrant.

      Benson was charged with possession of a controlled substance. He has been released on $1,000 bond.
