Police looking for break-in suspects.

ELBRIDGE TOWNSHIP — The Oceana County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying two suspects involved in a breaking and entering of a pole barn in the 1100 block of East Filmore Road Saturday, Nov. 5., said Oceana County Sheriff Craig Mast. 

The suspects stole a non-functioning Stihl gas-powered pole saw valued at $60. They broke the doorknob to gain access to the building.

The suspects are described as two Hispanic-looking males wearing masks made of t-shirts. One of the suspects was wearing a red Texas baseball cap and a flannel shirt, and the other one was wearing a dark blue or black Puma brand sweatshirt. Photos from a trail camera on the property captured their images.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff’s office at 231-873-2121.
