DECATUR TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Van Buren County Sheriff’s Office detectives detained two people after executing a search warrant during a narcotics investigation.

It happened in the 34000 block of County Road 669 in Decatur Township, according to a news release Thursday.

Detectives had made several purchases of meth from the house and were able to obtain a search warrant.

They found suspect 54-year-old Jamie Burns trying to run out of the house during the search, and he was detained by a deputy at the scene.

A 48-year-old woman was found in the kitchen and also detained.

During a search of the house after the two suspects were detained, detectives found a “large amount” of meth, along with items associated with narcotics trafficking.

Burns was arrested and lodged at the Van Buren County Jail for possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine, maintaining a drug house and multiple warrants.
