A nineteen-year-old Stanton man was arrested and jailed on Sunday for a home invasion he committed over the weekend.
According to the Montcalm County Sheriff Office, they encountered the suspect, Zachary Allen Bird, 19, on Sunday, in response to a report he was not wanted at the home of a relative on Evergreen Street in Sheridan. Through the investigation it was learned that the Stanton man was in possession of several items, including a firearm and other belongings that did not belong to him.
A short time later, a home invasion on the
200 block of Grant Street in Sheridan was reported. A neighbor who was watching the home for the homeowner noticed a door open and called 911. Deputies determined that the items possessed by the Stanton man were those stolen during the home invasion on Grant Street. Much of the stolen property was recovered and will be returned to the homeowner.
The suspect was lodged in the Montcalm County Jail on a charge of Home Invasion. He was arraigned Tuesday on a charge of Home Invasion First Degree and Receiving/Concealing a Weapon, both felony charges. He is being held on a $50,000.00 cash or surety bond.
