A man was arrested Wednesday for his alleged role in a series of wheel thefts from dealerships in Kent and Ionia Counties.
Early Wednesday morning, Ionia County deputies were alerted a man suspected of multiple wheel thefts in Kent County was also operating in Ionia County. At that point, deputies responded to Young’s Chevrolet Buick GMC in Ionia to discover a 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe with its wheels removed.
Authorities located the suspect vehicle just inside Kent County and located the stolen wheels in the bed of the truck during a traffic stop. The suspect was taken into custody and is awaiting arraignment on multiple related incidents.
The incident remains under investigation.
