BEAVER TOWNSHIP, (Newaygo County) — The Oceana County Sheriff’s Office is assisting the Newaygo County Sheriff’s Office with the investigation of a break-in to a barn that occurred early Sunday morning, Aug. 6, on the Newaygo-Oceana county line, according to Oceana County Sheriff Craig Mast.

A trail cam photo of the break-in shows the car involved in the crime and a quad that was stolen.

Thieves forced their way into a locked barn located on Maple Island Road near Oceana County’s Harrison Road, the sheriff said. They stole two quads – a Polaris Sportsman and a Honda, along with a shotgun, a weed whipper, a chainsaw and several hand tools.

“The stolen items likely ended up in Oceana County,” Mast said.
