Kalamazoo Authorities Seize $300,000 Worth Of Meth
A man from Ohio was arraigned Monday in Kalamazoo, after he was arrested in the act of smuggling over $300,000 worth of crystal meth.
The Kalamazoo Valley Enforcement team had been investigating reports of a man, who had been transporting large amounts of methamphetamine from California to an address in Kalamazoo Township. The investigation culminated in the arrest of 36-year-old Buddy Randall Parker Saturday.
A loaded handgun was found on him, and a search of his car turned up over 5 pounds of meth, two more handguns and at least $2,000 in cash. KVET tipped off Ohio police, and a search of Parker’s home turned up more meth, firearms and cash.
On Monday, Parker was arraigned in Kalamazoo County District Court on meth and firearm charges, with a bond set for $2 million.
