Police found the lab in a wooded area on the north side of town after neighbors complained of suspicious activity and police are looking for help to find the person neighbors say they saw hanging around the area.

The meth lab was found just south of Wright Street in Cadillac.

Just the day before in a separate case, police arrested Kenneth Rathbone in Mesick after they pulled him over for a broken tail light and found an active meth lab in his car.

He was charged with four drug counts today.
