HILLSDALE COUNTY, MI — A new drug operation was discovered Thursday in Hillsdale County at the site of a previous drug bust, police said.

On March 10, detectives from the Irish Hills Area Narcotics Bureau executed a search warrant at a residence in the 4200 block of Bankers Road in Hillsdale County.

During a search of the property, detectives seized heroin, prescription pills and methamphetamine packaged for delivery, police said, and a suspect was arrested.

Charges are being laid against the suspect through the Hillsdale County District Attorney’s Office, including counts of possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine, possession with intent to deliver heroin and possession with the intent to deliver analogues, police said.

RHINO detectives executed a search warrant at the same location in September 2021, with similar results, police said.
