RICHLAND TOWNSHIP – Police are investigating multiple daytime break-ins of Vestaburg-area homes.
According to Montcalm County Undersheriff Mark Bellinger, there’s been about a dozen of the break-ins this month.
“They’re knocking on the door and if nobody answers they enter the residence,” said Bellinger of the suspects. “If the house is locked, they make forced entry. They’ve been taking big screen TVs, guns and jewelry.”
Detectives are looking for more information about a suspicious vehicle – a greenish/blue/pewter-colored van that has been seen in the northeastern corner of Montcalm County during the break-ins.
“It possibly could include a multi-county area, since it’s on county lines,” Bellinger noted. “Our detectives are working with several other police agencies to compare notes. We taking it seriously.
“We encourage folks in that area to give us a call if they see something suspicious,” he added. “Definitely look out for your neighbors. If you see something that just doesn’t look right, give us a call.”
Anyone with information is asked to call the Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office at (989) 831-7590.
