Police seek breaking and entering suspect

The Montcalm County Sheriff Department and Howard City Police are looking for a man who broke into a resident’s barn earlier this week.

According to Montcalm Sheriff D/Sgt. Thomas Goerge, the incident happened on Tuesday, September 4, about 3:15 a.m. A resident in the 22000 block of West Almy Road, in Reynolds Township, was awakened and found someone in his pole barn.

The homeowner approached the intruder and ordered the person out. While attempting to detain the suspect, the homeowner called 911. As deputies responded, the suspect fled on foot and was seen getting into the passenger’s side of a vehicle waiting nearby.

The area was unlit and the only description of the suspect who had been in the building was that he was a male, about 5 feet 9 inches tall, and approximately 175 pounds. There was no description available of the driver of the vehicle. The vehicle was described as a dark colored car, possibly a two door, similar in appearance to a late 1990’s Chevy Cavalier. The deputies checked the area without success.

The homeowner, who was not injured, was a victim of a theft in June of this year, but this time nothing was stolen.

Montcalm County Sheriff’s Deputies and Detectives are continuing to work with neighboring agencies regarding the ongoing thefts in the area. Anyone with any information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office at 989-831-7590 or the tip line at 989-831-7593.
