HOUGHTON/BARAGA COUNTY, Mich. (WLUC) - On Dec. 4, detectives from the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team (UPSET) said they arrested 27-year-old Mark Granlund from Marquette on two counts of delivery of methamphetamine. That’s a 20-year felony and Granlund is also faced with a habitual offender second notice.

Granlund’s arrest came after a month-long investigation where detectives determined he was distributing methamphetamine in the Baraga County area. Granlund was arraigned in the 97th District Court and his bond was set at $10,000.

Next, on Dec. 6, detectives said they arrested 30-year-old Kelly Burich from Hancock on four counts of delivery of suboxone. That’s a seven-year felony.

UPSET said Burich’s arrest resulted from a six-month investigation of her selling illegal drugs in the Hancock area.

UPSET said Burich was arraigned in the 97th District Court and her bond was set at $1,000 on each count. With four counts, that’s a $4,000 bond.
