Three arrested in business break-ins


Joint police work between four Michigan police departments has resulted in the arrests of three suspects for 20 business break-ins in West Michigan, including three in Algoma Township in March.

According to the Kent County Sheriff Department, the Westland Police Department made an arrest on May 4 at an in-progress break-in within their city. Westland Detectives shared information with the City of Wyoming Police Department and the Kent County Sheriff Department on the suspect they apprehended. Detectives followed that up, and developed information that the suspect may have been involved in break-ins here, and that led to another suspect living in the City of Wyoming. Several interviews were conducted with the local suspect, which led to a third suspect, who lived in Canton, Michigan.

Kent County Sheriff Detectives conducted search warrants with Canton P.D. and Westland P.D. detectives at the third suspect’s home on May 20. Evidence and statements were obtained connecting the suspect to the break-ins in Kent County. All three suspects have now admitted to eight Kent County Sheriff Department business break-ins (Algoma Township, Plainfield Township and Gaines Township) and approximately 12 others occurring in the City of Grandville and Wyoming. These break-ins occurred overnight on March 22-23 and April 25-26.

The Algoma Township businesses broken into happened in March. Cash was stolen and damage done to Domino’s Pizza, 4324 14 Mile Road; Pinnacle Popcorn, 4320 14 Mile Road; and Hair Taylor’s, 4633 14 Mile Road.

Charges are being sought for all three suspects by multiple jurisdictions over the next week. Two of the three suspects are currently on parole and police said that all three have a drug habit.
