Breaking and entering scheme discovered in northern Michigan – Jan. 7, 2011

Manistee Post troopers, with the assistance of State, Sheriffs, Chiefs Enforcement Narcotics Team (SSCENT) officers, arrested a suspect in connection with several larcenies and breaking and entering acts after posting stolen property for sale on a popular Internet classifieds Web site.

The officers were able to associate the suspect with multiple breaking and entering locations. After executing a search warrant and searching a nearby home under consent, the troopers recovered more than $30,000 worth of stolen property.

The suspect was lodged on multiple felonies.

The troopers returned to the suspect’s home the next day and recovered an additional $10,000 worth of additional stolen property. The case is still under investigation.
