Drug charges for group accused of sending meth in teddy bears

Teddy bears are adorable toys designed for children -- but several criminal defendants are accused of using these cuddly animals for a nefarious purpose. Authorities say that several people were extradited to Michigan in late 2013 for drug charges after they allegedly mailed teddy bears stuffed with methamphetamine to a post office in Zeeland. Three people from Ottowa County have already been convicted and sentenced to lengthy terms, while two people who mailed the bears from California are awaiting sentencing.

A 54-year-old criminal defendant's case remains in limbo after a recent mistrial. The defendant was facing drug charges in connection with a May 2013 incident in Michigan, during which troopers pulled the man over for driving erratically. Officers say they discovered cocaine and pills in the man's vehicle. The defendant argued that the drugs belonged to his passenger. A jury deadlocked during trial deliberations on Jan. 23. The defendant is facing several felony counts of drug possession with the intent to deliver. He is accused of possessing prescription drugs including hydromorphone, methadone and oxycodone. He also allegedly was in possession of alprazolam - better known as Xanax - and phenobarbitol, both potent prescription drugs.

Drug charges won't apply to marijuana users on private property

Good news has arrived for all of those area residents who enjoy smoking a small amount of marijuana in their own homes.

The ordinance is designed to reduce the number of minordrug charges that have been plaguing the area. That measure passed in November by nearly a two-to-one ratio, according to area news reports.

Deputy charged with drug possession

Law enforcement officers are generally expected to uphold the tenets of local and federal law. These individuals are still human beings who make mistakes, however, and they should not be treated differently from any other citizen in a court of law, no matter the nature of their alleged crimes. A long-time veteran of the Eaton County Sheriff's Office in Michigan may have broken several laws in connection with alleged drug crimes. The man is charged with embezzlement by a public official and possession of a controlled substance.
