Remi lends a paw (or more likely a nose) in tracking down suspects
N3- While the publisher of N3 was making his way down 40th St. heading west earlier today it became necessary to pull over as a trio of law enforcement vehicles who seemed to be in a bit of a hurry came cruising in an eastbound direction.
Then later we received this from our friends at the Newaygo County Sheriff’s Department which quite possibly provides an answer as to their destination:
Big Prairie Twp. Arrests:
A 26 year old male from Ravenna, and a 32 years old male from Newaygo, were arrested this afternoon for breaking and entering, larceny, stolen watercraft and felon in possession of firearms.
Deputies from the Sheriff's Office and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources were dispatched to a suspicion situation complaint. Through an investigation it was determined that the two broke into a residence on Croton Pond stealing several item along with a boat. The boat was located up river toward Hardy Dam and a search began in the area.
A deputy patrolling the area spotted the two individuals who than ran off into the woods. A perimeter was set up, Sheriffs Office K9 Remi arrived on scene and began to track. Both individuals were taken into custody and lodged in the jail on multiple charges.
The boat and several items including firearms were recovered. The names are being withheld pending arraignment in 78th District Court.
