SHERIDAN — A Stanton teenager was arrested Sunday for allegedly committing a home invasion over the weekend.
Montcalm County Sheriff’s deputies encountered the 19-year-old man in response to a report he was not wanted at the home of a relative on Evergreen Street in Sheridan.
The man was found in possession of several items, including a firearm and other belongings that he did not own. A short time later, a home invasion on the 200 block of Grant Street in Sheridan was reported. A neighbor who was watching the home for the homeowner noticed a door open and called 911.
Subsequently, deputies determined that the items possessed by the Stanton man were those stolen during the home invasion on Grant Street.
Much of the stolen property was recovered and will be returned to the homeowner.
The suspect was lodged in the Montcalm County Jail on a charge of home invasion. Additional charges may be issued once the Montcalm County Prosecutor’s Office reviews the case.
