Police in Big Rapids made a significant drug bust at a home last week.


It all started Thursday night when central dispatch received a few 911 hang up calls from a home that prompted Big Rapids DPS officers and Mecosta County Sheriff Deputies to visit the residence.


During its investigation, officers discovered a handgun, along with 2.5 pounds of marijuana, seven grams of powdered cocaine.  


Big Rapids DPS Detective Brian Miller says it’s always a good thing for a community when you take drugs off the streets.


“I think from a public safety stand point and community safety this drug bust is huge because its drugs that would have been available are now out of the criminal’s hands.”  


Police arrested a 58-year old man at the home at the time of the investigation while subsequent surveillance led to the arrest of 51-year old man a 43-year old man on probation violations.


A 38-year old man from Baldwin who also lived at the home is expected to face charges of possession of cocaine with intent to deliver, possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and maintaining a drug house.
