OSHTEMO TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — An Arizona man is facing charges for what investigators say they found inside his luggage.

A tip led the Kalamazoo Valley Enforcement Team to an Oshtemo Township motel Tuesday morning. Officers who searched the suspect’s room found approximately two pounds of methamphetamine “ice” stowed in the man’s luggage.

KVET says the tipster told them the man was planning to take the drugs to Kalamazoo.

The 48-year-old suspect remains in the Kalamazoo County Jail awaiting arraignment on possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine.
