Hunting equipment stolen

October 6, 2015

OCSO cruiserNEWFIELD TWP. — The Oceana County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a larceny of several hundred dollars worth of hunting equipment on a parcel of federal forest property near the intersection of Buchanan Road near 176th Avenue.

Two bow hunters from the Hesperia area parked a 1999 Ford Ranger in the area while they were bow hunting, said Lt. Craig Mast. When they returned at 7:45 p.m., they discovered someone had gone through the cab of the unlocked truck.

Items taken include a crossbow with bolts; a compound bow with a case; an Ion Pro camera that mounts to the side of a bow; and several other miscellaneous items.

Mast encourages hunters to lock their vehicles when hunting “to try to prevent situations like this from happening.”

If anyone has information about the theft, call OCSO at 231-873-2121.
