(AMN) – On Jan. 2, 2022, at 8:50 a.m., Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the 27000 block of J Drive North. Residents in the area noticed foot prints in the snow around a home where the owners were known to be out of town. Deputies checked the residence and found that it had been broken into during the night. Deputies were able to follow the footprints in the snow through fields and woods, and they located some of the stolen items in a tree line several miles from the residence. Deputies also discovered additional footprints leading from the stolen property, which they followed out to 28 Mile Road where one of a suspect was walking down the road carrying stolen items with him.
The suspect was interviewed by deputies, then the suspect took them to a residence on 28 Mile Road where additional items from the break in were located and returned to the home owner. Deputies also located items, including a firearm, that appeared to be from another residential burglary nearby earlier in the week. Deputies spoke to neighbors and developed a vehicle of interest, which was located later that day. The suspect, a 40-year-old Albion male, was arrested and lodged at the Calhoun County Jail for burglary. This and other burglaries in the area remain under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office at 269-781-0911 or Silent Observer at 269-964-3888
