May 1, 2015


LUDINGTON — Graham Joseph Crawford, 23, Ludington, was arraigned Thursday, April 30, in 79th District Court on the charges of manufacturing methamphetamine and operating/maintaining a laboratory involving methamphetamine.  Crawford’s bond was set at $50,000 cash.  He is currently lodged at the Mason County Jail.  Both charges are felonies, punishable by up to 20 years in prison and/or a $25,000 fine.

On February 25, 2015 SSCENT (State, Sheriff’s, Chief’s Enforcement of Narcotics Team) and TNT (Traverse Narcotics Team) detectives executed a search warrant in the 200 block of North Harrison Street.  During the execution of the search warrant, several items used in the production of methamphetamine were located inside of the home, according to a press release from SSCENT.

The production of methamphetamine involves the use of hazardous materials and as a result requires specially trained technicians to clean up the site. Members of the Michigan State Police Methamphetamine Enforcement Team responded to the scene to dismantle the laboratory and remove the hazardous materials from the residence.  Members of the Ludington City Police Department and the Mason County Sheriff’s Office assisted at the scene in February.
