IRONWOOD, MI - Five people in the U.P. near Ironwood face a combined 370 years in prison. Police arrested them Monday during two separate methamphetamine busts.

Wendy Hemmings, George Davis and Kristin Carter were all associated with a meth lab on Florence Street in Ironwood.

Hemmings and Davis both face 90 years for their drug charges. Carter faces up to 50 years.

Also on Monday, police arrested Cindi Christensen and Joel Graser, Jr. in Ramsey, which is just east of Ironwood.

Christiensen and Graser both face up to 70 years in prison. Officers evacuated two neighbors during the busts. They wanted to make sure the dangerous meth-making materials didn't injure anyone as they were removed.

Police might not be done yet. The Gogebic Iron Area Narcotic Team thinks they may make more arrests for related crimes.
