Houghton Lake Post Troopers Stop a Breaking and Entering in Progress


ROSCOMMON COUNTY, MI. On Thursday, February 29, 2024, at approximately 5:50 p.m. troopers from the Michigan State Police (MSP) Houghton Lake Post were dispatched to a breaking and entering in progress at a vacant commercial building on West Branch Road. Troopers arrived to find the suspects on the premises with stolen property in their truck. The suspects were initially arrested for misdemeanor larceny, however, a further investigation led to enough probable cause being developed to execute a search warrant at one of the suspect’s homes. The search warrant resulted in the seizure of methamphetamine, unlawful firearms and ammunition, several stolen vehicles, along with many other stolen items. Several of the items recovered were identified as stolen and reported to other law enforcement agencies throughout Michigan. This investigation is ongoing, and the suspects will now be facing numerous felony charges. Houghton Lake Troopers were assisted by an MSP Canine Team, MSP Emergency Support Team, Roscommon County Sheriff Office, and Richfield Twp Public Safety.
