CALUMET, Mich. (WZMQ) – Multiple suspects are being questioned in a string of break-ins across Houghton and Keweenaw Counties.
Troopers from the Michigan State Police Calumet Post said three breaking and entering complaints have been reported. The alleged incidents occurred at seasonal homes, camps, and “places of opportunity.”
On January 19, troopers pursued the driver of a four-wheeler who refused to stop and eventually fled the scene. Further investigation led to a search warrant at the suspect’s home.
Troopers said numerous items that had been reported stolen were found at the home. Another search warrant was obtained and the suspected stolen items were recovered.
The Houghton County Sheriff’s Department, while investigating a breaking and entering complaint, also conducted a search warrant at another person’s home. More suspected stolen items were recovered there.
Troopers said investigations showed the suspects were using snowmobiles and four-wheelers to access seasonal properties. The alleged incidents happened during the overnight hours, and suspects broke into multiple buildings.
Troopers are asking anyone with information about these incidents or similar incidents to call the Calumet Post at 906-337-5145 or the Houghton County Sheriff’s Department at 906-482-0055.
