The Justice Department is going after four people in connection with a huge meth bust in Van Buren County last week. U.S. Attorney Patrick Miles says four people were indicted this morning by a federal grand jury in Grand Rapids after around 23 pounds of meth were seized by undercover officers last Monday. Miles says the bust is believed to have been the largest meth seizure ever in West Michigan and possibly the largest ever in the state. Facing charges are Jose Sierra-Villegas of Kansas City, Missouri, Alejandro Garcia of Grand Junction, Thomas Streich of Lawton and Brent Kellerman of Harrisonville, Missouri. They're all looking at decades behind bars if convicted. Federal prosecutors say undercover officers made arrangements to buy 20 pounds of meth at 23-thousand dollars a pound and found 18 pounds of the drug in Kellerman's truck and the other five pounds at Streich's home.
