Girls' chemical reaction leads police to find 'meth materials' near Bear River
The hospital visit of two high school girls led police to what they believe were "meth materials" near the Bear River in Petoskey.
According to Petoskey Public Safety Director John Calabrese, the two girls went to McLaren Northern Michigan Thursday around 7 p.m. with "discomfort" on their arms. Officials believed the discomfort came from a possible chemical in a bottle they found near the Bear River.
Police were called in to investigate. While searching the scene of where the bottle was found, police found materials that are usually associated with the creation of methamphetamine. There was no actual meth found at the site, however.
The girls were treated for the discomfort and released from the hospital.
Police are currently investigating where the materials came from.
