Pentwater Police Chief Laude Hartrum. “At no time were students or citizens in any danger.”

Swanderski may face additional charges as the Oceana County Sheriff’s Office is investigating two additional reports of windows being broken out, Hartrum said.

Pentwater police, assisted by the Oceana County Sheriff’s Office, investigated the crime scene Wednesday morning, Nov. 21, and later that evening Swanderski was arrested.

Swanderski’s bond was set at $25,000/cash/surety. He is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 10 at 3 p.m. for a preliminary conference.
