OTTAWA COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) — Michigan State Police and the Muskegon County Sheriff’s Department arrested the second suspect believed to have committed a series of home invasions on Wednesday. Investigation began in early March when police determined several daytime invasions in Muskegon County were related.
The first suspect, a 50-year-old Muskegon man, was arrested April 11. The suspect, arrested Wednesday, is a 19-year-old Muskegon man. Police say they caught him after he committed a home invasion in the 8800 block of Cleveland Avenue in Muskegon.
A homeowner called 911 after returning home and finding the suspect in the driveway acting suspiciously. The suspect left the scene by car and the homeowner determined his house had been broken into. He called police.
The suspect was arrested in Ravenna Township. He is being questioned about his possible involvement with other daytime home invasions in both Muskegon and Ottawa counties.
His name is being withheld pending arraignment.
While on their way to the scene to speak to the homeowner, two sheriff’s deputies rolled their cruiser while turning north onto 80th Avenue in the area of Cleveland. They lost control on wet pavement and wound up with the cruiser on its roof. The two deputies sustained minor injuries.
