A pair of 22-year-olds were arrested Sunday morning after alleged methamphetamine labs were found in a home on Delmar Road in Branch County Michigan's California Township .
Investigators with the Branch County Sheriff’s Office say that the Steuben County Sheriff’s Department asked for assistance with a driver who had fled from an accident just south of the Michigan-Indiana State line. The incident happened just before 8 a.m. Sunday.
Branch County Deputies responded and found meth components in the driveway of the home at 1023 Delmar Road. Investigators found meth labs in the home. They also learned that a man from Montgomery and a pregnant woman from Angola were living at the residence.
Reports from authorities indicated that the woman had significant chemical burns on both of her arms and hands from the labs. She was taken to the Community Health Center of Branch County for treatment of her burns.
The man and woman were both arrested for manufacturing methamphetamine and multiple outstanding warrants in Indiana. The investigation will now go to the Branch County Prosecutor Office for criminal charges of operating and maintaining methamphetamine labs. Extradition charges for Indiana warrants are also expected.
Branch County Sheriff Deputies were assisted by 911 Central Dispatch and the Steuben County Sheriff’s Office.
