September 4, 2013
The Alpena News

Following a seven-month investigation, the Huron Undercover Narcotics Team has arrested and lodged four individuals from Alpena County for their roles in the manufacturing and distribution of methamphetamine in the Hubbard Lake and Ossineke area.

HUNT detectives began the investigation in February after identifying several area residents as possibly being involved in the manufacturing, sales, and use of methamphetamine. The investigation culminated last week when HUNT detectives arrested the four suspects after the Alpena County Prosecutor's office issued multiple felony warrants for each individual.

"This recent round of arrests once again shows the influx of methamphetamine in our community," HUNT Commander D/Lt. Frank Keck, stated in a press release. "It also shows the community the commitment of HUNT and the Alpena County Prosecutor's Office to combat the issue. We are not going to stand by and watch our community be overtaken by such a dangerous and destructive drug. We all stand to lose a lot if narcotics such as methamphetamine gets a stronghold in our community, and we will fight hard to keep that from happening."

Arrested and lodged in the Alpena County Jail were:

William Franklin-Shan Beard, 38, was arrested on a five count felony warrant for conspiracy to deliver/manufacture methamphetamine, two counts of delivery/manufacture methamphetamine, and two counts of operating/maintaining a laboratory involving methamphetamine, all of which are punishable by up to 20 years and/or fines of up to $25,000. He also was charged as a habitual offender which carries a penalty of up to life in prison.

Monica Lynn Torz, 39, was arrested on a four-count felony warrant that included conspiracy to delivery/manufacture methamphetamine, and three counts of operating/maintaining a laboratory involving methamphetamine, all of which are punishable by up to 20 years and/or fines of up to $25,000.

Amy Rams Bowen, 46, was arrested on a three count felony warrant that included one count of conspiracy to delivery/manufacture methamphetamine, and two counts of operating/maintaining a laboratory involving methamphetamine, all of which are punishable by up to 20 years and/or fines of up to $25,000.
