Battle Creek Police officers responded to the C-Store at the corner of Columbia Ave. and 20th St, where the suspect vehicle was located; at the scene, police found a 31-year-old man and 34-year-old woman, along with stolen property.
The Michigan State Police are looking into a string of break-ins that occurred near Burr Oak last month.
The MSP says that between October 22 and 25, a suspect or suspects broke into multiple homes in the 61,000 block of Bass Ln.
The 26-year-old had been wanted in Jackson County, and was believed to have been in Kalamazoo County’s Comstock Township Tuesday afternoon. He was first tracked down to the 5000 block of Savannah Ave, but evaded capture and allegedly broke into three homes in that area, stealing various items, before stealing a car and speeding off.
When the owner of a company redeveloping downtown Battle Creek told police he had been robbed and shot at, authorities brought out their police dogs and investigators in order to track down their suspect. Now, authorities say the incident never happened.
