An attempt to make drugs in Calhoun County failed after law enforcement gained knowledge of it.

The Calhoun County Sheriff's Office says they received a tip that a methamphetamine lab was located at a residence in the 900 block of Capital Ave. NE in Pennfield Township. As a result of the tip, Sheriff's Deputies executed a search warrant to the residence around 3am Monday.

Inside, authorities say they found the meth lab, and discovered a 44-year-old man pouring liquids down the drain in the bathroom. They also discovered a large amount of meth waste in the residence. It's not known whether the drug lab was the "traditional" kind, or a "one-pot" lab that is becoming more common.

That 44-year-old Battle Creek man was arrested, on charges related to the attempted meth production, as well as for unrelated warrants.

A 41-year-old Battle Creek woman was also arrested for unrelated warrants.

Both suspects were lodged at the Calhoun County jail. Deputies are continuing to investigate this case.
