Wyoming — Part of a sheriff’s department office in western Michigan has been evacuated after a detective became ill during testing of suspected narcotics.

The Kent County sheriff’s department says standard testing was being conducted Tuesday morning on a white powdery substance when the detective had a possible drug reaction. A hazardous materials team responded, and the detective was taken to a hospital.

The detective was given an opioid overdose reversal drug as a precaution.

Air quality tests were being conducted. Other areas of the Kent County sheriff’s department offices in Grand Rapids remained open.

The detective from the Wyoming police department is a member of the Kent Area Narcotics Enforcement Team. The substance was collected Monday during an investigation.
