BYRON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Authorities are seeking a man linked to home invasions in Kent, Ottawa, and Allegan counties.

Authorities said the string of invasions happened between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Friday.

Allegan County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Ben Haas said a man broke into neighboring homes between 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. in the 3900 block of 26th Street, just north of Sandy Pines.

In those incidents, the suspect took a wedding ring, an undisclosed amount of cash and broke an empty safe open.

Authorities in Ottawa and Kent counties are also investigating similar incidents that happened between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Friday.

The Ottawa County robbery happened at a home in the 3000 block of Ottogon Street in Jamestown Township, resulting in a TV being stolen.

Authorities in Kent County then responded to a home invasion in the 4400 Block of 76th Street SW Friday afternoon.

The homeowner told police that they returned home and discovered a TV and some cash were stolen.

An image was taken on the homeowner’s surveillance camera and can be seen placing a TV in a purple four-door passenger vehicle, which authorities said could possibly a 2005 Buick LaCrosse.

The suspect is a man last seen wearing a light brown winter hat, black jacket, blue jeans, and grey and white Nike shoes.

Anyone with information regarding the home invasions, the suspect or his whereabouts is asked to call the Kent County Sheriff’s Department at 616.632.6357, Allegan County Sheriff’s Office at 269.673.0500, the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office at 800.249.0911 or Silent Observer.
