At approximately 3:30 p.m., Reed City Post troopers responded to a call from a homeowner in Mecosta County who arrived home to find two males exiting his house from a rear window. The troopers followed the suspects’ footprints and the blood trail left by one of the intruders in the snow for a half-mile. The trail led to a residence, where the troopers identified and interviewed two suspects. Through conversation, five additional suspects were also identified, solving two break-ins in total.
