ORLEANS TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) - The Ionia County Sheriff's Department is asking for the public's help to identify a breaking-and-entering suspect.
Authorities say the suspect was seen leaving a house he had burglarized earlier this week. A witness watched him walk from a home to a silver, four-door car. He got in the passenger seat, meaning a second person was driving.
Deputies say there has been a string of break-ins at homes in three northern Ionia County townships: Orleans, Otisco and Ronald.
They say the suspect may have knowledge of the others, but have so far only firmly connected him to one.
A sketch of the suspect has been released.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Ionia County Sheriff Office at 616.527.5737 or Silent Observer at 616.527.0107.
The Norton Shores Police Department is reporting three reports of stolen snowblowers this week.
About a dozen people were displaced.
One person was arrested after a threatening comment resulted in a school district briefly locking down its schools Friday morning.
