Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – A recent routine stop by a state conservation officer led to the arrest of an Upper Michigan man on poaching and drug charges.

Earlier this month, Officer Dave Painter was patrolling Ice Lake in Iron County when he talked with a group of people fishing on the lake who were fishing with too many lines.

He found out that one of the group had shot an antlerless deer without a proper license during the December muzzleloader season.

Painter also discovered illegal drug paraphernalia in the man’s ice shanty, which was seized as part of the investigation.

Painter then traveled to the man’s Iron River house to retrieve the illegal deer that was shot and discovered a marijuana growing operation of 33 plants.

The man was arrested on the fishing violation and warrants are being sought from the Iron County Prosecutor’s Office for the deer and marijuana violations.
