Niles man found guilty of possession of methamphetamine
CASS COUNTY, Mich. – A Niles man was found guilty of unlawful possession of methamphetamine Tuesday, the Cass County Prosecutor’s Office announced.
Daniel Steven White was charged after a marijuana bottle containing methamphetamine was found in his residence during a home visit, according to reports.
On September 10, 2021, the Michigan Department of Corrections and the Cass County Drug Enforcement Team conducted a home visit to White’s Burton Road residence.
At the time, White was on parole out of Cass County for domestic violence and resisting and obstructing a police officer.
The Department of Corrections conducted the visit due to erratic behavior from White, reports said.
When agents met with White during the home visit, White allegedly demonstrated behaviors similar to a person under the influence of methamphetamine, reports said.
White would not directly answer questions and made obscene gestures and comments towards a statue on the property, reports said.
A search of the residence found a black bottle containing suspected methamphetamine.
The suspected methamphetamine was sent to the Michigan State Police Forensic Laboratory and tested positive for methamphetamine, according to reports.
White is scheduled for sentencing on May 6.
He is considered a habitual offender.
