Deputies: Home invasion suspect arrested in Alto following chase

Kent County

CASCADE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A suspect was arrested Saturday morning after taking off from a home invasion and then leading deputies on a chase, Kent County authorities say.

It started just before 5 a.m., when the Kent County Sheriff’s Department says deputies responded to a home invasion call in Plainfield Township. The homeowner recognized the vehicle of the intruder and after a brief confrontation, the homeowner fled to a neighbor’s house and the intruder ran to his car.

Deputies responded quickly enough to find the suspect’s car but it outran them. They were then able to find the suspect again and try a traffic stop, but the car took off. 

The chase did not end even after the suspect struck a deputy’s cruiser.

The suspect drove to his home around the 8800 block of Summerset Woods Drive SE, off 60th Street near McCords Avenue near Alto. Deputies negotiated with the suspect and he was ultimately arrested peacefully.

The sheriff’s office says its investigation is ongoing.
