Early this morning there was a reported breaking and entering by a homeowner at the 1200 block of N Victory Corner Road in Amber Township in their garage. While this break in was being investigated, MCSO deputies were dispatched to a suspicious vehicle parked in the road on Pleasant Ridge in Pere Marquette Township. Upon responding to the Pleasant Ridge Rd call deputies recovered items stolen from the break-in. The vehicle recovered was a side-by-side, which had been stolen out of the City of Ludington.
While deputies were investigating the “suspicious vehicle” a resident approached and reported a 2004 Red Chevy Silverado pickup stolen from his driveway sometime overnight. During the earlier morning break-in, a deputy noticed a vehicle driving past the scene several times and attempted a traffic stop. The vehicle fled and a short chase ensued where the vehicle got away. That vehicle matched the description of the pickup that would later be reported stolen.
