FERRY TWP. — A clipboard containing Dish Network paperwork left behind at a crime scene has led the Oceana County Sheriff’s Office to two Dish Network workers from the Saginaw area who they believe stole two 50-caliber muzzleloaders from a residence in the 3200 block of South 124th Avenue.

The resident discovered the clipboard that contained handwritten notes and installation forms for Dish Network, Thursday, April 9. “The resident thought this was very suspicious, since he does not have a subscription to Dish Network,” said Lt. Craig Mast of the OCSO. The resident later discovered that a CVA muzzleloader and Thompson muzzleloader were missing from his home, Mast said.

The case was turned over to a OCSO detective who located the owner of the clipboard, Mast said, and the man admitted that he was doing installations in the area with the other suspect. It was then discovered that one of the suspects was on a parole detainer and is now lodged in the Saginaw County Jail. The OCSO is seeking warrants for a 43-year-old Saginaw man and a 35-year-old Saginaw man in connection to the crime, Mast said.
