Fingerprint test could detect cocaine use

Michigan residents may not have heard about a new fingerprint test that may determine if an individual has used cocaine. In addition, it can use a process called mass spectrometry to find out if an individual actually put the substance in his or her body or merely touched it. Doctors say that when an individual uses cocaine, the body excretes small amounts of benzoylecgonine and methylecgonine.

Woman facing charges on methamphetamine production

A Michigan woman is facing charges of maintaining and operating a methamphetamine production lab. She was recently arraigned and is free on bond.

Possible consequences when charged with theft

No one can know exactly what will happen when charged with a crime as the circumstances always vary, but Michigan residents may wonder about the possible consequences if convicted of theft.

For example, property with a low value may result in a misdemeanor charge while higher valued property could lead to a felony charge.
