SPRINGFIELD, Mich. — What started as a domestic situation Thursday evening eventually lead Calhoun County Deputies to discover and seize over a pound of marijuana, several plants, and a firearm.

Around 8:00 p.m. Thursday, Deputies were called out to the 200 block area of 24th Street for a domestic problem, where several “unwanted subjects” were reportedly present.

The person who had originally called in the complaint had told dispatchers that one of the people there was involved in selling illegal drugs.

When Deputies arrived on scene they observed what they say was evidence of said illegal drugs. They then obtained a search warrant for the residence and performed a more thorough search.

Over a pound of marijuana, several marijuana plants, and a firearm were eventually located and seized from the property.

One person on scene was arrested for outstanding warrants.

Further charges stemming from Thursday’s incident will be determined after the Calhoun County Prosecutor has a chance to review the case.
