MUNISING – Four Munising residents have been arrested after authorities discovered a mobile methamphetamine lab in their vehicle.

Arrested were 19-year-old Cortne Cornish, 20-year-old Jordan Maddox, 21-year-old Trent Howard, and 17-year-old Trevor Maxon. Each faces one felony count of manufacture of methamphetamine, which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.

The charges stem from a Tuesday incident that occurred on Prospect Street in Munising.

Troopers from the Munising detachment of the Michigan State Police had stopped a 2003 Ford Taurus for a traffic violation. While investigating, they discovered an active “one pot” methamphetamine lab and other components used in the manufacture of methamphetamine in the vehicle.

Detectives from the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team (UPSET) responded to the scene in order to safety collect and dispose of the components at a secured holding facility.

Assisting at the scene was the Munising Fire Department.
