IRON RIVER—An investigation is continuing following the discovery of several containers holding suspicious liquids in Iron River on May 8.
The first report came at 11:30 a.m., when an eight-year-old boy was exposed to an unknown liquid while using the playground equipment at Bachman Park. A burst pop bottle containing an unknown liquid was found nearby.
The boy was not injured.
Iron River Police were summoned to the scene, and troopers from the Iron Mountain post of the State Police came in to assist. As they looked around the area, they discovered four more containers at nearby Nanaimo Park.
Realizing that the items found are often used to make methamphetamine, specialists from the Upper Peninsula Special Enforcement Team (UPSET) narcotics team responded to the area and collected all the materials, which they identified as methamphetamine precursor materials.
As of Monday morning, Iron River Police report there have been no further developments.
