Police seek help solving break-ins


The Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office and the Michigan State Police are asking for assistance in solving break-ins that have been occurring at the Pierson Trading Post in Pierson. The business has been victimized with two thefts in as many days.

The Michigan State Police handled a break-in at the Trading Post on Sunday evening, August 11, at about 11:13 p.m.

The Montcalm County Sheriff Department then responded to a break-in there on Tuesday morning, August 13, at 1:56 a.m. and found a window broken out. The in-store video showed two people wearing disguises entered the store and took consumable goods. Both thefts appear to be similar.

Both agencies ask that anyone with information come forward. Tips can be reported to Detective Sgt. Tom Goerge with the Sheriff’s Office at 989-831-7156, Detective Ed Doyle with the State Police at 989-352-6515, or the Sheriff’s Office Tip Line at 989-831-7593.

Golf course break-ins


Over the past few weeks the Kent County Sheriff Department has investigated at least six golf course break-ins in the eastern and southeastern portions of Kent County. In each of the break-ins, suspects have forced their way in to either the pro shop or storage buildings and targeted merchandise or cash.  Investigators believe the break-ins are related and the Kent County Sheriff Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying either of the subjects pictured.

The first suspect was seen at one of the break-ins wearing mostly white. He is described as a white male, with a tall thin build. The suspect has dark hair and wears glasses. He had a unique hat on with a short bill, similar to that of a train engineer. Headphones can also be seen around the top of the hat.  See the first two pictures below.

The second suspect was seen wearing a dark shirt with lighter colored pants. He is described as a white male, shorter than the first suspect, with a thin build. He also was wearing a hat which was dark in color and a dark colored bag with a shoulder strap.

Any information can be forwarded to Silent Observer 1-866-774-2345 or to Detective Roon at 616-632-6142.
