OTTO TWP. — A local man who is the victim of a break-in to his home on 142nd Avenue near Rothbury that he discovered, Aug. 18, is seeking help identifying the suspects.

The photos of the young female suspects were taken by a trail camera hidden inside the home, July 12. If anyone can identify the suspects, contact the Oceana County Sheriff’s Office at 231-873-2121. Oceana County Sheriff Robert Farber said the case is currently being investigated by detectives.

“I pulled up to my home … only to see that my home had been broken into as both doors were now unlocked with the front door actually left open,” the homeowner told OCP. “I live in Wisconsin and I am in the process of moving to this home on a permanent basis, but I placed a Browning trail camera inside a custom-made garbage can to capture any illegal activity that may take place while I am away.”

“They did use my camping lantern to look into areas where lighting was poor,” he stated.

The man said a shed on his property was also entered, and the suspects also left the shed door unlocked. The doors to his house and shed were locked when he left, he said, and he believes the suspects entered both buildings through rear windows.
